#5515: Plugin directory: Change layout to "unstretch" header image

 The banner image size for plugin assets is set to 772x250 because that's
 what fits best when the plugin details are shown in the "Add plugin"
 dialog directly on a WordPress site.

 On wordpress.org/plugins, though, the same banner is usually shown in a
 stretched version. Every now and then, yet another plugin author asks why
 they can't upload a larger resolution banner for the plugin directory. The
 answer is always that most ordinary users usually only see the dialog
 through their own site, so – no thanks.

 I'd suggest that we change the layout of the single plugin view on
 wordpress.org/plugins so that the banner won't be stretched. We could, for
 instance, let the right sidebar, which holds various plugin details,
 ratings, etc. start higher up, next to the banner.

 I'm too lazy to create a mockup right now, but I think you get the idea.
 Obviously, the layout would still need to be adjusted for various
 viewports, etc.
