warning to backup before installing new plugin

    Part of the glory of WordPress is the ability to quickly and easily install and activate a new plugin.

    As you are about to do this it would be good to have a warning reminding you that a badly written plugin can destroy your site, even if you remove it and that you should do a full backup first.

    There's one for core in 3.4 but if we warned people every single time they did anything that MIGHT cause a problem (theme, plugin, activate a plugin...) it would be like Microsoft :/
