Make plugin update even MORE easier.

    Hello guys,

    I love the feature of 2.3 where it tells me that a new version of my plugin is available. Now, everytime i need to upgrade, i do the following:

    1: Copy the download link location.
    2: Log into my server.
    3: Do a wget.
    4: disable/backup the old one.
    5: Turn the new one on.
    6: Make sure it works.

    If i didn't like the new upgrade (which has yet to happen with the plugins i'm using), i would revert my change.

    IT JUST SEEMS TO ME, that this processes could be automated. So what i want it.

    "A BUTTON, that ONCE clicked, will download, unzip, and install new version of the plugin for me. Oh yeahh, also back up the old one!."

    Also, this probably would mean that we would need a "Delete plugin" button as well, so we can clean up the older ones.

    Wachu guys think?
