Hi list,

I see our discussion has died. But one thing is absolutely essential - 
introducing the qgisMinVersion() method (or apiVersion(), however I believe 
the former is just much clearer).

QgsPythonUtilsImpl::loadPlugin should reject the incompatible plugins. Martin 
what do you think? Would you like to implement it? I don't know if is there 
any _good_ function for version comparision? (for Python I haven't found any 
sufficient so I had to write my own).

Now I'm going to implement it in Installer. Uncompatible plugins in repository 
will be masked while installed uncompatible plugins will be marked red.

So if nobody object, I'm introducing the following metadata: 

They are of course optional. If missing, the plugin will be loaded anyway.
