Ok, here is some thoughts on the gui for installing a new plugin. This is in
keeping with the philosophy of keeping the simple things simple.
I wish there were a place where I could upload some docs and sample images
to make the point more clear, but i will just type some stuff for now.

User clicks on 'Install new plugin' button
Dialog box with single text field asks to enter the url of pluign update

A really cool feature of RSSOwl (and other Mac applications) is that if the OS's copy buffer already contains a URL, then that is pre-filled in said text field. That way, when you've copied a URL from a remote page to type it in, it's already in the field when you need it.
