 Review comment:
   Currently plugins are loaded both on JM and TM.
   Regarding the directory structure, the downside of splitting it per type, is increased
complexity for a user and extra possibilities for misconfigurations (typos in subdirectories,
placing plugin in wrong subdirectory). Also it would prevent from implementing a single plugin
that adds multiple things. Think of for example a plugin adding both SQL data type and UDFs
to manipulate it at the same time.
   The only benefit that I can think of is easier/faster plugin discovery (when looking for
file systems you could skip reporter plugins), however I'm not sure if that's an issue. Also
if it will prove to be an issue, we can opt for centralised plugin architecture, something
like [presto is doing](https://github.com/prestodb/presto/blob/master/presto-spi/src/main/java/com/facebook/presto/spi/Plugin.java)
- we could discover only `Plugin` implementations and `Plugin` would report what does it provide
or not.
