Each plugin is different and requires separate porting work. It's not so
much that it's scary, but I already maintain 10 or so ports and don't
want to maintain all the individual plugins on my own. 

My original idea was to create a single port called mupen64-plugins that
contained them all, and that turned into a huge mess. I suppose that's
the main reason I remember it being scary. Since then I just never got
back to working on the ports again, and decided that if I were to
continue it I'd rather have some help maintaining them.
