Expose plugin compatibility information in repository

Description (last modified by ewinslow)
One of the most asked question on community.elgg.org both in the group discussions and also in the comments to plugins is: "Does it work with Elgg version XY?"
After the soon to be released Elgg 1.8 this question will be asked again countless times for sure.
Currently, the developers can mention the compatibility in the plugin description or release notes, but it isn't done in most cases unfortunately.
A mandatory field about compatibility of a newly released plugin could help at least in the future. Multiple versions (1.6, 1.7, 1.8) could be offered, maybe even minor releases, but one version must be selected at least for the upload of a plugin to work.
