 "The plugin `foo.php` has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file
 does not exist."

 This seemingly harmless behaviour on the Plugins screen can end up being a
 royal pain for developers. Consider the scenario where you've renamed your
 plugins directory or any of the plugins within it (ie. to do some
 debugging with plugins disabled), and then you visit the Plugins screen.
 BAM, your plugins have been deactivated.

 I think this behaviour should be removed, and instead a list of erroneous
 plugins displayed, with the option to manually deactivate them.
