 While [https://github.com/WordPress/servehappy/issues/34 discussing plugin
 compatibility for the `servehappy` project], it became apparent that
 there's no easy way right now to find alternatives for a given plugin.

 The specific use case we were talking about is when you want to upgrade
 your WordPress installation to a newer PHP version, but you find out that
 one of your plugins is not compatible with that version.

 It would be great to either have a "Related Plugins" section below each
 plugin, or have an optional search functionality to query for related
 posts instead.

 The algorithm can take into account multiple factors, like name,
 description, tags, ... These should be compared in a weighted way, so that
 we can fine-tune the results.
