I don't see this on the wiki - what's the plan for replacing
'parrot_config revision' , which is currently used by languages
targeting non-released versions of parrot to determine if they have a
new enough version to proceed?

Right now, this is saying "r1" (under svn, this would have returned
something like "12345")
