Add plugin uninstaller notification text

I'd like to see some indication in the plugin delete interface that a plugin has an uninstaller, and so will probably delete its data.
This is similar to issue #8783, but instead of proposing any new functionality, I just want to add some display information. I also have a patch.
The scenario that concerns me is this: a user has a plugin zip and wants to upgrade a plugin. They're not FTP savvy, so they try to use the upload interface, and get the "Destination folder already exists" message. So, they go back to the plugin listing and click "Delete" by the current plugin. It warns them that the files will be deleted, but this happens with automatic upgrades anyway, so it doesn't sound that scary. They click "Yes, delete these files", and their data is gone too...
