There is a 'x-hackage-revision' field in the .cabal file which gets
updated each time the package description is edited. May be useful for
generating distribution packages, e.g. you could have foo-1.0,
foo-1.0-rev1, foo-1.0-rev2, etc.

Regarding version tags - they're deprecated and are going to be
removed in the 7.12 release of GHC.
