There are probably a myriad more or less complicated ways to make this 
happen. One simple way could be to talk to the plugin registry itself 
and call "listPlugins" with the desired interface to retrieve the 
active plugins and call updateCredentials on each. Does that sound like 
a reasonable thing to do inside a plugin (because only PAS itself 
seeems to work that way now)?
