Well, consider Subversion itself for an actual example: it'd make it a
breeze fetch an arbitrary tagged version *with* exactly the right
version of the various external libs that version depended on. No need
of parsing the README to extract that info. This is actually a thing
that I'd ask to a versioning system, not to a build system. I do not
care if it's done within svn or not, but I think it would be nice to
reserve a *standard* and promoted property to track this kind of
