There is also the distinction between "live" plugins and non-live
plugins (plugins can indicate being live and there are rules about it.

In particular, for live plugins, you *have* to regularly call run if it
is activated.  So, to bypass, you're either running it on nothing
(wasting cycles) or you have to deactivate it.
