Expanding on the plugin idea here, and taking this more OT, (my

Specifically, I'd like the plugins to be sorted by status

It would seem rational to just have two 'boxes' (not boxes
per se), where one corresponds to inactive plugins and one
contains plugins currently in use. A drag and drop facility
would be beneficial, as well (as long as a fallback exists).

have a way of deleting the plugin from the panel itself. Perhaps both
of these functions would be best done via a plugin (oh the irony) but
I just thought I would put those thoughts out there.
On plug-in deletion, I can't say that it's a wise step. You
can then have plug-ins that reach a state of invisibility,
or oblivion. There is a common design flaw wherein an item
is greyed out, yet you have no indication of how to make it
reachable. This can be very, very frustrating.
Incidentally, getting back to Hello Dolly, I find it interesting that
even though I've been a WPer since 2003, Andy's post about the plugin
being a good starting point for new plugin devs is news to me. You
learn something new every day, eh?
