Plugin modules

Are there any plans to modularize Gradle itself e.g. like Maven. I mean that all plugins (core or not) are dealt in the same way. Which means applied and loaded in a standard fashion like:

apply plugin 'group:id:version'

This would simplify the handling with custom plugins from external and internal sources. More exactly there wouldn’t be any difference between Gradle core plugins and other plugins. Currently they are dealt unequally. bye David

Yes, we’ll definitely tackle this use case (and friends) at some point.
