Looks good to me; it definitely benefitted from a more thorough rewrite.

That's completely fair. The UUID case was requested and I implemented it mostly
to show how easy it was to extend this code to support other keywords.
Personally, I think the UUID is an internal repository concept which doesn't
provide much in the way of useful information to carbon-based readers. The
repos-url, on the other hand, would by much more useful to be exposed to humans
(different problem ;-).

Truth in advertising - the patch I submitted was closely based on plasma's
(plasmaball@pchome.com.tw) original patch,

        http://www.contactor.se/~dast/svn/archive-2003-05/1975.shtml

brought up to date with the core code changes that occurred over time. The only
code I wrote myself was the compatibility layer and the Python tests (which are
not part of this patch).
