My sentiments are similar. But, in the long run a non-exetuable
meta-data file is a bit simpler - you can distribute only that file, and
no trust between the parties is required to read it in.

I've implemented both kinds of meta-data file type, where the plain text
is the origin. The php file is generated off the text, can be
concatenated into one big thing and can be used uniformely.
