We could converge on meta-plugin interfaces for all things that
someone could want to use two backends for in the same app... But
this is a lot of work, and arguably over design - in practice we
don't meet this often.

What i think is a better solution is to have component scoped
plugins, which are available through $c or through $self on a per
component basis, as opposed to the whole app.

This let's us get the same flexibility, with a O(1) effort, instead
of an O(N) effort - once per plugin family.
