      Description

      The reasoning is quite simple, blocks should behave more like real plugins - it is quite expensive to make class instances of all blocks just to find out is one of them needs to be updated, not to mention the fact that any problem there results in whitespace on the frontpage for admins.

      We have already switch to normal plugin names, so it should not be any extra work for developers upgrading blocks...
