getPlugins inspection and debugging tool

When getPlugins can't find your plugin, it's confusing. There should be a tool which prints an easy-to-read summary of where getPlugins looked for a particular interface/package pair, and why it looked there. Better still would be for such a tool to inspect plugin modules for common errors, the biggest one being "you implemented a plugin but you didn't instantiate a provider", but also things like "you made some classes but none of them implement this interface".
