Permanently Disable/Enable Plug-Ins from Browser/Manager

Even all these years into established DAWs, people are still manually moving their plugins into and out of 'Unused' folders to prevent them impacting app startup & performance.

It'd be great if users could just right-click plug-ins in the browser/manager, and select to disable (blacklist) them indefinitely. Once that's selected, the plug-in will not be scanned & loaded when Studio One starts up.

Seeing as Studio One already maintains its own secret blacklist of plug-ins that caused start-up problems, integrating the new option with this functionality could be an effective way to implement it.

Obviously, there needs to be a way, either in the same menu or somewhere else, for users to re-enable specific plugins as desired. The current blanket 'Reset Blacklist' button would not be sufficient.
