Views revisions plugin
I would like to propose to include to the Redmine as a rake task mechanism which i implemented in my Plugin views revisions plugin.
In short, logic behind it eliminates necessity to create full plugins distribution packages if some of the views which plugin changes, changed in the Redmine itself.
If this method would be de-facto standard for plugin development, it would remove last obstacle in the flexibility - right now it is possible to patch controllers, models and helpers but for the views we have to provide whole file, and every change to this file in the Redmine core causes plugin malfunction.
I filed feature request #11104 - it contains further information.
Meanwhile, all the details are on the plugin page here: http://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_plugin_views_revisions

Why not just use git branches for each version?
