This proposed patch to qgis.utils modifies the plugin loading to allow users to define additional plugin path locations (for example shared plugin folders). It allows these paths to be defined by a QGIS_PYTHONPATH environment variable, which can hold multiple paths separated by a semicolon. In each path it will look for a plugins folder, and in that each folder containing an init.py* will be treated as a plugin module.
