Please!  This would be so much more useful. :)

As a mac user, I totally agree with this - Homebrew is WAY nicer to use.  I'd rather compile stuff by hand than use macports.  I installed rabbitmq 2.0 via homebrew a few days ago and it was super easy.  Macports installs a ton of stuff you don't need and reinstalls components already on the system, homebrew does not.

I'd go even farther than this.  Why do a web interface and the BQL tools need to be plugins?  Make them part of the core server and add configuration to enable or disable them.  I'd be willing to bet that a huge majority of users have a need for these things, so why make them extra installs?  I think this would definitely improve your out-of-box experience.
