OOH.  Same idea here.  I don't want auto-install them.  But other people do.

Imho auto install of jquery plugin is not needed. Fine grained control

I was thinking that modules can define hook_jquery_plugins, which will
auto-register the filenames and check if they exist (admins will download UI
to sites/all/scripts).  Then other modules could call jquery_include('ui',
'resizables') which would auto-include the resizables (from the UI module)
and everything it depends on.

This archive would be available ideally from the jquery website, as we
