FS#1212 Show plugin dependencies
It would be nice to show a warning on the plugin admin page when a plugin requires helper plugins to work.
This could be easily implemented with an additional field "dependency" in the array returned by the getInfo method of the plugin. This field would be checked when installing a plugin. I imagine the behavior as follows: When a plugin is installed with missing helper plugins, a warning is displayed via the msg() function. The plugin has a yellow background in the list. When displaying the plugin information, the missing helper plugin names are shown.
This is done: there is a required field in the information block of all plugins to describe their dependancies. Of course plugin authors have to use it.
