main: rework launcher version checking

The code has an ad-hoc check in that it requires the launcher major
version to not be less than the source code version.  We don't really
care about that requirement, and it doesn't fit with our other version
checks.  Rework it so we explicitly declare the min launcher version
that is supported.

We'll start with requiring repo launcher 1.15 which was released back
in 2012.  Hopefully no one has anything older than that, although it's
not clear we work with even newer versions than that :).  But let's be
a little conservative with the first update to this logic.

repo

Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.

Install

Many distros include repo, so you might be able to install from there.

# Debian/Ubuntu.
$ sudo apt-get install repo

# Gentoo.
$ sudo emerge dev-vcs/repo

You can install it manually as well as it's a single script.

$ mkdir -p ~/.bin
$ PATH="${HOME}/.bin:${PATH}"
$ curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/.bin/repo
$ chmod a+rx ~/.bin/repo
