Description

Hi !

I find it unclear for the user that user-installed plugins and built-in plugins are not differentiated at all.

Problems :
- hard for the user to understand why a plugin can be uninstalled why another can't
- it feels like someone already installed a lot of plugins when you may actually work on a fresh and clean install
- this is made even worse when some of the built-in plugins are invalid

Possible solutions:
A. (easy) : list the system plugins at the bottom of the list, with a separator between the user plugins and the system plugins
B. (medium) : add a "system plugins" tab alongside "All","Installed",etc. This would make sense since a built-in plugin is not actually "installed" (at least not by the user)

Thanks for the great plugin manager ;)

Olivier
