Specification of minimal required version of CHICKEN in egg files

This is about making it possible for egg authors to specify the minimum version of CHICKEN required for their eggs in egg files.

Something like

(minimum-required-chicken-version "5.5.0")

When users try to install eggs, chicken-install should verify whether the version of CHICKEN is recent enough to install the requested eggs.

This gives us more flexibility for making not-so-radical-but-breaking core API changes within a major CHICKEN version, still providing good feedback to users.
