 There's a few shortcomings of the code being used in themes, but for
 plugins there's an extra few extras including:
  - >= 100 installs, active installs only (ie. installed on 1,000 sites,
 active on 50 won't block)
  - Search will need to be by `Plugin Name` rather than slug
  - We can't match based on slug, so slug changes in wp-admin won't be able
 to catch conflicts, but we can do something like `my-awesome-plugin` looks
 up `My Awesome Plugin`
  - The slug changer will override any blocks, so if the original author of
 a widely used plugin were to submit under a slightly different name it
 could be 're-allocated' to it's correct slug.
