Thank you for sharing this! Can a basic README be added showing a few
things a user could try after installing it from source? I also put a few
comments inline also.

  - Is the implemented plugin autoloading useful?

more common mechanism of discovery in Python.

  - Should we put the cli (plugin-)packages in the corresponding pulp

mainly come from how we want to test the CLI packages in CI. If we want to
test them with every plugin change then we probably do want them in the
same repo. This is similar reasoning to why we keep the bindings "with the
plugin". What do you think?
