Hi devs,

I'd like to start moving very old plugins out of the core and into the 
contrib/retired repository.

For the moment, this includes:
- PatternPlugin (regexp based text replacements when running the old 
rendering engine)
- TablePlugin (pre-Radeox support for wiki table syntax)
- GooglePlugin (search and spelling suggestions)
- GraphViz (graph drawing, unmaintained for a long time; should be 
replaced with a component)
- MailPlugin (unmaintained mailbox reading plugin)
- QueryPlugin (old, unused precursor of the query service)
- SVG (old, unmaintained plugin; should be replaced with a component)
- testPlugin (test plugin, writen as a test plugin to test the plugin 
functionality :) )
- XWikiUserManagementTools (precursor for the invitation application, 

The remaining plugins must be rewritten as components first, since they 
still provide useful functionality.
