Note: This ticket is a subtask for the overarching #40934 ticket.

If plugins now start making use of the "Requires PHP" version information in their plugin header, we should make sure that plugin searches can be filtered by their required PHP version.

This might include changes to the indexing infrastructure (indexing that information and allowing indexed queries against it) as well as changes to the UI (giving users the possibility to either use search flags in text form or faceted search mechanisms to communicate such a query.

The current patches for #43986 also work during plugin search. What this means is that incompatible plugins will be shown but not be installable.

This is probably the easiest way to accomplish the goals of this ticket while not having to do lots of extra work.

+1 for going with #43986

Currently we haven't any filter in plugins search to "Requires at least" or "Tested up to".
