comment Ask user permission when activating a plugin
You could set an option somewhere that states whether the user has agreed or disagreed. Simple true/false option value. Build your plugin in a way which it relies on your option value being true. If it's false, don't provide any further functionality of your plugin to the user. You could have a settings page, admin notice, or even a popup if so desired. But in order for that to work, your plugin needs to be activated. Your plugin is activated, but doesn't do anything until the user has been prompted to agree/disagree to your terms of use. Once agreed, provide full functionality.

comment Getting the Site URL Including the Front Base
I have a plugin which needs to know the post type URLs and taxonomy URLs. As you know, post types and taxonomies can have the front base appended.

comment Getting the Site URL Including the Front Base
Well, yeah. Ideally that would be nice if you knew what the front base was. What if you don't know what the front base is? AKA working in a plugin, which the front base could be different on several sites using the plugin. That's why I was going to retrieve the contents of permalink_structure option, and parse it myself, then append to home_url(); or site_url();. I was just curious if there was an easier way.

comment Post MetaTable Overload
Enable WP_DEBUG in wp-config.php - Also read Common WordPress Errors. I have several thousand posts with numerous Custom Post Types and a LOT of post meta. My websites run just fine. It could be a conflict of plugins or just a poorly coded plugin which is eating up your memory. Another thing to note would be the number of posts you are displaying per page in the admin section. Especially if your post listing tables are displaying data from post meta. Try reducing the number of posts displayed in your post listing tables.

comment Using require_once() within admin
I like to get in the habit of prefixing stuff. Functions, Classes, Globals, Constants, etc. Just in-case somewhere else is defining the same thing. Maybe change INCLUDE_PATH to something like PREFIX_INCLUDE_PATH.
