Hi Tom,

This was commented out due to the new modules packaging required by plugins
when they are installed. In order to support this new packaging, we will
need to do something similar to that which is done when building a plugin
from sources and installing it. e.g:

   1. resolving all dependencies
   2. building a module and dependencies module
   3. copying that module and dependencies module to the proper directory in
   4. registering the plugin in ~/.forge/plugins/installed.xml

It *should be* fairly straight forward, but maven never makes things easy. I
need to figure out how best to handle building a zip of the plugin itself
(for distributions). I think that would be easy to do via forge, but
difficult to accomplish via maven. This definitely needs some thought.
