Well, then the name of the plugin should be written to the log, for
troubleshooting.  Or is it necessary to say "Plugin %s wakes up"?
Would it be enough to say "%s wakes up"?  I'd guess that many plugin
names are shorter than the translation of "Plugin" in many languages.
Hmm, many languages don't seem to translate the word "Plugin", but
the Estonian and Finnish translations are among the longest ones.
