[annotator-dev] How to bypass AnnotateIt and use local storage

I think the issue is that `setupPlugins`, which comes from the kitchensink
plugin, is setting up a group of default plugins and options. The Store
plugin is already loaded by the time you try to load it explicitly, with
the default settings for annotateit.

These are the defaults:





        {label: Annotator._t('User'), property:

        {label: Annotator._t('Tags'), property:


      tokenUrl: config.tokenUrl or 'http://annotateit.org/api/token'
      prefix: config.storeUrl or 'http://annotateit.org/api'
        uri: uri
        uri: uri

You can pass an additional argument to that `setupPlugins` call with a
`storeUrl` property, or you could override the entire set of Store options
by specifying a third argument, an options object that will get merged with
this config, where you could set prefix directly in a `Store` property.
