Make plugin dependencies clearer in Themes directory

Description

More and more themes in the directory have plugin dependencies but you don’t learn that until after you activate the theme.

I’d like to see dependencies clearly listed on each theme page, as well as having a feature filter to be able to weed out themes with dependencies.

WordPress does not have plugin dependencies built into it, for themes or otherwise.

Themes should not have any dependencies.

Suggested plugins is one thing but they should never depend on plugins.
