Comment (by dd32):

 IMHO the `tested` version is still being relied upon way too much.

 Take for example a search for `Debug Bar Console`, I'd expect that exact
 plugin to show up, unfortunately though it has a tested-up-to of 3.4.2,
 which results it being pushed to result 55 of 56 matching plugins.
 This actually makes me want to bring back the compatibility widget..  or
 add per-plugin wp-usage stats so that search can say "Oh this must work,
 lots of people use it on recent versions" - both of those seem like hacks
 around search though.
