[Qgis-developer] fTools version masking

While attempting to fix issues with menu ordering, I noticed the new
version of fTools in master branch has same version as the one that
users may have installed recently: 0.6.1.

The version for fTools in master branch should be incremented, so that
the 'older plugin is masking new plugin' dialog can be shown to users
who install QGIS 1.8.

The new 0.6.1 plugin checks hasattr(self.iface,
"addPluginToVectorMenu") but the old 0.6.1 does not, and just adds the
menu. If there are other vector plugins using the new Vector category,
two Vector menus may be shown.
