Summary: plugin directory should be versioned

Initial Comment:
As far as I can tell, the extensions/engines/tools belong to the library rather than to the application (i.e., they should be usable in principle from 3rd party software as well). However, the directory they currently get installed to (/usr/lib/avogadro) is not versioned; so if one has two non-compatible versions of libavogadro, the plugins for the old version might make trouble with the new version and vice-versa.

Thus, the plugin library should be versioned
