Motivation for this change

Some firewalls performs deep packet inspection to block VPN traffic, such as the Greaf Firewall (GFW) of the Chinese government. Therefore it is required to obfuscate the traffic which can be done using the v2ray software. This PR introduces the v2ray-plugin for the shadowsocks VPN and makes the shadowsocks service for NixOS aware of plugins.

Personally, I'm using this in production for myself and for a friend in Beijing for a couple of months without problems. This is what my configuration roughly looks like:

  networking.firewall = {
    enable = true;
    allowedTCPPorts = [ 8488 ];
    allowedUDPPorts = [ 8488 ];
  services.shadowsocks = {
    enable = true;
    encryptionMethod = "chacha20-ietf-poly1305";
    passwordFile = "/path/to/shadowsocks/key";
    localAddress = [ "" ];
    port = 8488;
    mode = "tcp_and_udp";
    plugin = "${pkgs.v2ray-plugin}/bin/v2ray-plugin";
    pluginOpts = "server;";
