Yes, I apologise for being slow about this. A good idea would be to create a Trac ticket, so that people can register interest in having the patch by adding themselves to the cc list. The more people that want it, the higher up my priority list...
Better still if everyone adds a comment to the ticket to explain what their pass is like, and why they want the plugin feature.

| Hi José,
| The patch implementing GHC plugins is with Simon PJ and awaiting merge
| into GHC (and has been for some time - he's a busy guy and its a big
| patch). However, even once it's merged some more work will need to be
| done to make sure that it plays nicely with the shared library support
| (now that has been implemented on all major platforms).
| In short, the easiest way to add a pass to the compiler right now is
| to download GHC and build it yourself
| (http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/Building). Sorry!
| All the best,
