Please see

The current plan is to provide three config keys

'revision' for backward compatiblity
'sha1' for the git sha1
a third revision key (not sure yet which name) which contains output 
from 'git describe --tags', which can be used for comparison (albeit a 
bit more complicated than numbers)

Once parrot does that, I plan to update Rakudo's, you can 
steal from there once it's in place.
