Tracking versions of WordPress plugins in theme directories

On WordPress projects where the entire application is defined by the theme, it can be common to submodule or directly commit WordPress plugins to a directory like theme-name/lib. However, in doing so, you lose out on WordPress’ built-in update tracking.

It would be cool to have a utility plugin that loads theme-specific plugins into the Manage Plugins view and WordPress update check.
