Some asset related tasks run during app start up

I was wondering … is there a rake task that we can run to do this plugin handling instead of doing that during the application start up? We run our instances with apparmor and would like to avoid allowing the app server to write application files.

This is going to require changes here

We are unconditionally deleting a file for plugins that define js assets on plugin boot. I guess we could be doing this stuff in tmp folder instead.

why not as part of the normal asset rake task?

Not against amending this afaik it is the way it is mostly for historical reasons, it would be a fairly complex change
