Currently the scaffolded file looks like this...

// ***********************************************************
// This example plugins/index.js can be used to load plugins
// You can change the location of this file or turn off loading
// the plugins file with the 'pluginsFile' configuration option.
// You can read more here:
// ***********************************************************

// This function is called when a project is opened or re-opened (e.g. due to
// the project's config changing)

module.exports = (on, config) => {
  // `on` is used to hook into various events Cypress emits
  // `config` is the resolved Cypress config

I think this puts too much emphasis on "turning off this file" - there's not really even a use case of that, and instead we should maybe list out the available plugin events.

The only problem I see with this is that when this file is scaffolded - it's scaffolded based on the current version of Cypress. As users upgrade Cypress we may release new plugin events but they won't be listed into the commented out code.
