    Description

      From a conversation in jabber and following on from MDL-16392

      It would be good to have an array somewhere containing all information about plugins, where their db directories are etc. At the moment get_db_directories seems to contain most of this information but there are other places in moodle that duplicate this (the example was events_load_def).

      If we could maintain one array containing this information and then a few helper functions around it we could potentially:

      a) remove a lot of duplication
      b) make it easier to add new plugin 'types' later without having to add db location information in muliple places
