      Description

      If I want to add a new Connector Plugin to a running distributed Connect cluster, I need to copy the JAR to the classpath and then restart all the workers so they will pick up the new plugin before I can create a connector.

      This is both un-intuitive (most modern up can pick up changes dynamically) and can get difficult when a connect cluster is shared between teams.
