Another thing that is important to track is module dependencies.
Say, if I write a module Foo that depends on REXML, I should be
able to specify that in the module metadata as well.

Perhaps we can start gathering some requirements on the wiki
and once there鈥檚 consensus, put together a simple implementation.
Then, if it鈥檚 worthy, it鈥檒l take hold and people will use it.
Otherwise, it鈥檒l get abandoned and that鈥檒l tell us something
about it鈥檚 necessity.

I鈥檒l volunteer to take my current module and mutate it to fit this
set of requirements.
