In oik version 1.17 the child plugins will automatically relocate themselves to become plugins in their own right. At the same time they will be served from the oik-plugins server ( www.oik-plugins.com ) rather than the WordPress repository. Also, their version numbers will be 1.18
There are a number of reasons for doing this, but the main reason is to improve the upgrade process for the plugins; you will have fewer plugins installed/activated so for each update the number of plugins that will need changing will reduce.
