rather than use $MODULE::VERSION, you may want to use a hard number (like 9999)
- I only mention it because sometimes we have to alter the upstream version
numbers so that portage can understand that version 0.5 is greater than version
0.401 (which portage doesn't interpret as a decimal, but instead as a version
seperator). Just something to think about :) (though I think getting the reorder
patch updated would help you out a lot too).
