The MySQL Proxy 0.8.0 shows that the proxy plugin version is 0.7.0, which is not true. This value should be updated to 0.8.0.

There have been changes made to the plugin that are not on 0.7.0

How to repeat:
1- Run 

./mysql-proxy-0.8.0-osx10.5-x86-64bit/sbin/mysql-proxy --version

And see: 
"  proxy: 0.7.0"

mysql-proxy 0.8.0
  glib2: 2.16.6
  libevent: 1.4.6-stable
  lua: Lua 5.1.2
    LUA_PATH: /Applications/mysql/enterprise/mysql-proxy-0.8.0-osx10.5-x86-64bit/lib/mysql-proxy/lua/?.lua
    LUA_CPATH: /Applications/mysql/enterprise/mysql-proxy-0.8.0-osx10.5-x86-64bit/lib/mysql-proxy/lua/?.so
  == plugins ==
  admin: 0.7.0
  proxy: 0.7.0

Suggested fix:
Update the version number of the proxy plugin

With the release of MySQL Proxy 0.8.0 the plugin's version number doesn't have to match of the MySQL Proxy itself. They can have their own version numbers and can have their own release cycle.

Internally there is a API key can verifies that binary plugin can be loaded.
