I think that if plugin writers could be "forced" to add a txt file (like
pluginname.ver) containing the number version of lastest stable to check
against owned by user archive distribution. A small method like
"get_plugin_version" could be triggered for example once a week?

The only problem is that for famous plugins this could be an hammer into
web servers.

I use to do that with my plugin Spreadshop, I have a txt version number
contained in svn at Google code. Each time someone opens option page it
checks for a new release number then displays in the option page.
