Plugin Manager & Dependencies

I think I gotta be dreaming: The plugin manager does NOT automatically download
dependent plugins, it doesn't even say that there are any dependencies. That has the nice
effect that after restarting IDEA to activate the plugin, you get that dialog saying that
a dependent plugin is missing and then IDEA completely refuses to start until the missing
plugin is either manually downloaded or the problematic one is deleted. WTF??

I just had to remove my contest-plugin because this behavior is unacceptable. And I
thought providing the functionality as two modular plugins was a good idea...
