When installing components, Xcode still loads third party plugins

Classification:UI/Usability Reproducible:Always

When installing components via the commandline using

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/MacOS/Xcode -installComponents

Xcode will still load third party plugins, opening the dialog for user approval for those if it is a new version. This makes unattended installation impossible if any third party plugins are present. It would be better for Xcode to just ignore and not load third party plugins in this scenario.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install any third party Xcode plugin
2. Download a new version of Xcode
3. Run /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/MacOS/Xcode -installComponents

Expected Results:

Xcode installs components without user interaction.

Actual Results:

Xcode pops up the third party plugin approval dialog.


This worked in previous versions, because the approval dialog was added in 6.3.2 - while it is a welcome addition, it breaks this scenario.
