[wp-hackers] Checking for custom Plugin Headers?

I just submitted a patch that allows plugin authors to specify
additional Headers to be returned by get_plugin_data(). For example,
a plugin could have:
WP Minimum Version: 2.8
...and with this filter you could make get_plugin_data() return that
header as $plugin_data['WPMin'] right alongside the standard
The patch is secure -- it doesn't let plugins alter the standard
headers at all, just add new ones.
Does anyone else like this idea? I've had several cases over the
years where I thought this could be very nice for plugin coders.
Here's the ticket on trac: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8964
