Maybe a minor downside to (3) would be it’s less smooth of a transition if you ever wanted to promote/demote a plugin — involves moving code across repo as well as changing configure/CMake glue whereas (2) I’m guessing just involves the later with plugin code staying unchanged/unmoved.

Maybe try approach (2) first as it seems simpler, then find out along the way what improvements are needed.
