The example storage plug-in is currently not shipped as a dynamic plug-in. It would be better to start doing so for a number of reasons 

- offer doc writers proper material to demonstrate the plug-in interface
- allow users to play with the INSTALL PLUGIN syntax
- provide a stable and sure means for bugs-verification team to verify general bugs in the plug-in interface

How to repeat:
just install mysql-5.1.22-rc-linux-i686-glibc23/.tar.gz

Suggested fix:
please provide the EXAMPLE plugin as a true dynamic plugin

We had shipped it before and were told we shouldn't be shipping it.
