I'm the current maintainer of gmpc-plugins. The plugins packaged are already
bundled together upstream.

I've seen some plugins packaged separately that are deprecated upstream (I
have to check which one).

I have personally no strong feeling against separate packaging of some
plugins if users find it useful.
