I'm using existing "plugin system". Tested 20 plugins and all loaded
correctly. I think there is a problem with perceiving the existing
tools as an sophisticated advanced technology. In reality, it's
fpath+= to the plugin's dir and not much more. This is innovative, but
for sure it isn't a tragedy to just ignore what already exists. Zplug
has some additional functionality that I want to recognize today,
maybe that's a different case.

Well ZPlugin is designed from scratch to reveal as much as possible
from plugins internals at time of loading it. It's hard to add this to
existing projects.
