      Description

      Right now we have one core function:

      get_plugin_types()

      that returns all the plugins supported by moodle. It's used in upgrade code to look for upgrades under all plugins.

      In the other side, we have the function:

      get_db_directories()

      that returns all the directories where we can found database install/upgrade scripts (used by the xmldb editor, database manager...)

      And right now, both functions are 100% separate, having to keep such lists maintained manually.

      Solution: Let's modify get_db_directories() in order to use get_plugin_types() to know about all the dirs being candidates to have install/upgrade/xmldb editor... scripts recognising the same plugins always.
