This seems like a sensible direction. But consider using an ini file  

author = blah
version - blah
dependency = "blat1, blat2"

(or all caps, if you like)

parse_ini_file($filename) will make short work of converting this  
into a useful array.  And it's already set up for different line  
endings, comment formatting (# or ;), and it matches what folks are  
already used to.
