Plugin Directory Admin: Renaming Plugins Should be More Ajaxy

Description

Right now plugins can be renamed before they're approved/rejected. This is good!

The problem happens when you try to rename a plugin to one that's already taken.

For example, if you try to rename a plugin from woocommerce-plugin-for-wordpress to woocommerce you go to a page that says the name is taken. From there, you have to click the back button, refresh the page, and try again.

That rename check could be smarter.

Ideas:

1) Ajax check if the slug is taken and throw an alert box if it is before saving

2) One of those 'as you type' checks like they have for if a username is available, again, before you click save.
