Spark locks up when downloading Pade Meetings libraries

Description

Since Pade Meetings plugin is now included in the build, it starts the download of ~150 MB (on Windows) on a first login and Spark is not responsive until download finishes. This only happens on a first login, but still annoying.

Users can always disable any plugin, but this can only done after the initial bad experience.

Therefore, I suggest we go back to having it disabled by default and only enabled by users who create custom builds of Spark and know what they are doing.

After introducing download on a separate thread in https://github.com/igniterealtime/Spark/pull/577 we don't see Spark locking up until it downloads Electron files for meet plugin.
