      Description

      If a compression provider plugin is uninstalled at runtime, the command succeeds without errors or warnings, but in fact the compression algorithm is still available for table handling or even setting it as a default compression algorithm.
      The test plugins.compression_load has this logic, so it must be intentional, and it is probably safer this way – causes less troubles and uncertainties regarding what should happen at runtime in this case. But at least a warning similar to existing "plugin is busy" would be informative. Even better if it were still possible to handle existing tables, but not to create new ones anymore, but it's probably difficult to achieve.
