i may also have miss something,

as i read, we may have the following plugins dir structure for 
openvas5.x :

./plugins/12planet_chat_server_xss.nasl
..
..
./plugins/zyxel_pwd.nasl
./plugins/lib/
./plugins/GSHB/
./plugins/nmap_nse/
./plugins/report_formats/
./plugins/2013/ ...


for openvas6.x :

./plugins/lib/
./plugins/GSHB/
./plugins/nmap_nse/
./plugins/report_formats/
./plugins/2013/ ...
./plugins/2012/ ...
./plugins/2011/ ...
...
/plugins/2005/ ...
...

to have the same nvtfeed for both 5.x and 6.x (before retirement of 
5.x)
why not having :

./plugins/12planet_chat_server_xss.nasl -> 
../plugins/2005/12planet_chat_server_xss.nasl
..
..
./plugins/zyxel_pwd.nasl -> ../plugins/2005/zyxel_pwd.nasl
./plugins/lib/
./plugins/GSHB/
./plugins/nmap_nse/
./plugins/report_formats/
./plugins/2013/ ...
./plugins/2012/ ...
./plugins/2011/ ...
...
./plugins/2005/ ...
...

and remove all links when openvas5.0 retire  or openvas6.0 use?
with openvas 6.0, we can also include plugin-signature in the plugin to 
reduce by 2 number of files

Anyway, count +1 for my vote, for adding 2013 dir.
