plugins: allow plugin arguments to be passed directly
Passing arguments to plugins had to be done through "arg=<argname>". This is redundant and introduces confusion especially when the argument has a name and value (e.g. `-plugin plugin_name,arg="argname=argvalue"`). This allows passing plugin arguments directly e.g: `-plugin plugin_name,argname=argvalue` For now, passing arguments through "arg=" is still supports but outputs a deprecation warning. Also, this commit makes boolean arguments passed to plugins in the `argname=on|off` form instead of the deprecated short-boolean form.
