Comment (by lgladdy):

 attachment:29820.6.diff​ changes from a header parameter to a call back as
 per comment:35

 It also removes the click handlers once a plugin has been installed which
 stops you being able to install a plugin twice.

 The syntax is exactly as @dd32 described inside your plugin file:

 $plugin_slug = plugin_basename( __FILE__ );
 add_filter( 'configure_link_' . $plugin_slug,
 'plugin_filter_configurl_function', 10, 1);

 function plugin_filter_configurl_function( $link ) {
   return '/wp-admin/plugins.php';

 Given register_activation_hook exists, do you think we should create a
 function called register_configuration_link too to abstract the need to do
 the plugin_basename stuff?
