1. On 0.3.5 "/plugin load" does not use weechat.plugin.path as a search path for plugins. Apparently it is used only for autoloading, but for the sake of consistency it should be used while manually loading too.

2. Perhaps autoload should only search for plugins from directory defined by weechat.plugin.path.

In my real world use case the system WeeChat (under /usr) and its libraries are in version 0.3.3, but in my home directory I have version 0.3.5 installed. When starting WeeChat 0.3.5, it tries to load old plugins from the system directory (/usr/lib/weechat/plugins) even if weechat.plugin.path points to my home (/home/test/usr/lib/weechat/plugins)

Example behavior for 1:

> /set weechat.plugin.path /home/test/usr/lib/weechat/plugins

| Option changed: weechat.plugin.path = "/home/test/usr/lib/weechat/plugins"

> /plugin load irc

| Error: API mismatch for plugin "/usr/lib/weechat/plugins/irc.so" (current API: "20110428-01", plugin API: "20090614-02"), failed to load
