I would like to suggest a feature to be able to bypass a plugin from the console without opening the plugin's GUI e.g. with a modifier key like CTRL+click.

[Completed in 3.5] Additionally I would like to suggest visual feedback of bypassed plugins in the console.

This can be as simple as (orange is bypassed):

Or with a little more clearness...

This is actually something I was thinking about recently. I use the "off" state like I should bypass most often because this feature is not in the console. Maybe it would make the most sense to have normal click, no modifiers, bypass the plugin, but CTRL+Click or CMD+Click turn the plugin on or off.
