That is exactly what I try to do atm. Sort of. Versioning in filename. Deleting pluginspec of the old plugin. Then it shouldn't be loaded on restart and I can delete the old dll.
Still not a perfect solution. Would be nicer to be able to load and unload plugins. Though
I guess due to possible dependencies this could me much harder work than such a rare use case is worth it.
