Yes, running as non-root was definitely one of my side goals in addition to
having multiple versions running simultaneously.

As far as a script to link plugins, what did you have in mind?  Do you mean
plugins that are already installed on your system in the normal locations, just
a way to symlink those to the correct place under the new top level directory?
Or, plugins that you were actively developing?  I'm not sure how we'd know
where to look for those, although we could introduce an environment variable
set to their location.
