plugins: Allow entry_points to be registered

It's currently impractical to use out-of-tree plugins that want to be
distributed via distribution channels.

Poezio now looks for every entry point registered in the
`poezio_plugins` entry group, and will use the first matching module
with the specified name.

This also helps specifically for the OMEMO plugin that has a conflicting
name (omemo / omemo) with the backend library.

Thanks jonas for pointing this out.
