    55In a situation where someone is going to edit a file and they know it's an active plugin, those plugins are at the top making it easier to find.  I would imagine that developers would find it helpful when debugging an issue with a plugin and I know it's helpful from a support perspective for the same reason.  It also would be a big assistance when looking into issues where plugins are white labeled and you do not know for sure what the plugin is from just looking at the plugin list.
