Reduced to Critical as this need not block the 0.7 release since we currently do not link
to any plugins with incompatible licenses.

Since plugins can be hosted on different sites they can be released under licenses other than
the Apache one. We need an element in plugins.xml that records the type of license a plugin
is released under. This element should be used by the plugin install process to verify that
the user agrees to the terms of that license before download and installation is started.

For example:

<license name="A.N.Other License" url=""/>

would result in the user being asked to read the license at the supplied URL and then typing
yes to agree (no skips installation).

<license name="A.N.Other License">
  This is the text of the license.

would result in the license text being displayed and the user being asked to agree.
