Bug Description

As the list of plugins for snapcraft grows it will be much easier to read if it is presented compactly to avoid scrolling. This would be a good example, much like ls:

  $ snapcraft list-plugins
  ant copy kernel nodejs tar-content
  autotools go make python2
  catkin jdk maven python3
  cmake kbuild nil scons

Ideally, use two spaces between each column, and use no more than 120 characters wide.

This is low priority unless there is a nice helper function that we can bring in to do it easily :)

[Impact]

 * The output of snapcraft list-plugins is ugly.
 * This is just a cosmetic change to improve the snapcraft experience.

[Test Case]

 * Run snapcraft list-plugins.
 * Check that the output is nice.

[Regression Potential]

 * Listing the plugins could stop working. We have an integration test that calls the binary and prevents this regression.
