A severe error could be caught, but if the problem is just that the plugin is scribbling all over the screen and making horrible noises, there iesn't a way to tell.
I suppose there could be a "meta-plugin" that would ask the user which plugin to use, and whether to ask the question every time, or to always use a given plugin for a given site. Either the user would answer, or the answer would be obtained from a database, and then the requested plugin would be invoked.
So if it turns out that FooFlash is better for YouTube and BarFlash is better for Pandora, the correct plugin could be invoked for both (this could be used for folks who cannot or do not wish to use Adobe's proprietary plugin).
