Bug Description

I propose a sanity check for plugins before they are installed automatically with the system installation. Right now, when the installation of a single plugin fails, all plugins that would have been installed thereafter are skipped as well.
The problem occurred with a plugin that depends on a artefact type that comes with another plugins, so with the sanity check the dependent plugin can check, if the artefact type was already installed.
A sanity check could also be used to check the installation of PHP-extensions or external programs.
The sanity check should also be called before a plugin is offered for installation after the core installation.

I filed a separate bug for the related idea of a versions & dependencies check, because I still think that could be useful too:

Bug 1298855: new method Plugin::sanity_check() that is called upon install or
update of the plugin. Caught exception InstallException results in the
error-message being presented to the user and the plugin not being installed
while the installation process continues
