 The idea of having minimum PHP version requirements for plugins and themes
 was recently [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/40934#comment:19
 "blessed" and milestoned for 4.9]. As discussed in the
 latest #core-php meeting]:
 > It should be possible to specify a minimum required PHP version for
 plugins. Once this is supported by core, it is likely that more plugins
 will raise their minimum requirement, so it will eventually be another way
 to make people aware.

 The ticket includes some Meta-related tasks:
 * Plugin readme parser changes for minimum PHP version requirement.
 * Plugins API changes.
 * Show minimum required PHP version on plugins page.
 * (Optional) Allow filtering plugin directory.
 * (Optional) Report PHP version usage per plugin’s users.

 Attached is a preliminary patch that introduces a `Minimum PHP` header and
 displays in in Plugin Meta widget, implementing the first three points.
