- From my (Foreman) perspective regular small restarts for plugin
installation is fine, since Jenkins does a controlled shutdown, queues
up jobs and continues after restart.

The complication might be if existing plugins get upgraded at the same
time, particularly if there are dependencies from the one being
installed, since it could change behaviour or in the worst case,
require some attention from other users to update config.
