#2386: Plugin Directory: Restrict Devs concurrent submissions

 The queue is rarely longer than 7 days. As such, the burden of reviews can
 get a little weird when people submit upwards of 10 plugins at once. Wish
 it was a joke. The problem is most of the time the reviews are all the
 same results, with the same errors repeating in each separate plugin.

 It would be nice if we could restrict submissions as follows:

 If a developer has NO active plugins, they can submit one plugin

 Otherwise, if a developer has 3+ plugins in 'draft' or 'pending' (which
 means in review), they cannot submit any more. Give them a nice message of
 "You have too many plugins in the queue. Please wait for them to be
 approved before submitting any more."

 This would mitigate repetition of reviews, which can be pretty onerous.
