The Horizon plugin for the app catalog[1] should have no problem
staying in step with Horizon.  Ultimately our intention is to make
this plugin so desirable it becomes a native part of Horizon so
enabling in a cloud becomes as simple as a config switch.  We're not
ready for that yet of course, so please don't let that comment

be tightly coupled to Horizon.  This approach makes the most sense to
