> The webservice (or whatever) could give a response like:
> - Up to date and working with the new version
> - Not working (and no update available)
> - Not tested (use at your own risk)
> - Needs update to work (and is available)
> "Not working" should disable the plugin automatically so
> there are should be no errors after installation. "Needs update"
> should download the new version and install it after the
