An undocumented feature that we have is that if in your plugin's
directory you create a "plugin.disable" file (content is not important,
can be empty) then that particular plugin will not be loaded by Oxygen.
We'll try to add some documentation for it and maybe in a future version
also provide a more elegant way via the Preferences dialog of disabling
In either way, Oxygen will need to be restarted after the enabled state
of a plugin changes.
