 You wouldn't need a separate installer process. All of the code could be
within a stack that runs in the IDE. Within the IDE RunRev provides a
function which giver you the path to the user plugins folder. You would use
that function to get the root plugin path. You would then unzip the archive
to that folder (or a subfolder). It seems to me that this would be the
easiest for the user rather than having to find their plugins folder.
