It might also be a good idea to caution against unchecked API client
invocations in


until a real fix for the problem is in place. Also, that document does not even
mention the add_dependencies() method, leaving plugin developers that much more
room to come up with dodgy code that does weird stuff in add_dependencies() or
even omits it entirely. I haven't written any plugins so far, but I suppose I
could update that part of the documentation - I've become rather familiar this part of the code while fixing <https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1442121>.

If I wanted to add a section on add_dependencies() and its pitfalls to
pluginguide.rst, how would I go about it? Just submit a change with a
"Partial-Bug: #1442121" or is that big enough to require a spec?
