[Bug 469981] Better support for solutions that don't require a specific OS

The vast majority of solutions on the marketplace are not specific to particular operating systems, yet solution versions are required to check the three checkboxes (Windows, Mac, Linux/GTK) regardless. These three are then displayed under "Additional Details" for a solution as well as under every URL in the "Update Site URL" pop-up.
There are two issues here:
What about other operating systems. We support support Solaris, for instance, but our marketplace entry implies that we don't.
The vertical space is precious in the "Update Site URL" popup and displaying OS information for solutions that are OS-agnostic conveys no useful information.
I recommend having a way to indicate that a solution version is OS-agnostic and then omit all OS information from the solution pages presented to the user.
