Plugin updater should obey minimum version

The plugin updater doesn't appear to obey the "minimum version" value for plugins, at least based on the source code.

For example, if a new version of a plugin requires WordPress 2.6, users running the older version of the plugin on WordPress 2.5 shouldn't be nagged to update.

AFAIK this is taken care of server-side.

If a user is running 2.5, And a plugin requires 2.6, The update notification shouldnt even be sent to the WordPress installation.

Maybe this could be used in conjuction with #5117 to notify that a plugin requires a later version of WordPress?

Ah, I wondered about that but decided to open a ticket just incase. :)

As for the notice, meh, if the user is gonna ignore the big "PLEASE UPDATE OMGZ!" message at the top of their screen, then I doubt they care about a plugin update.
