They could be php, and I am leaning heavily in that direction, albeit  
not in functions. The biggest con
however imo is that drupal.org needs to be able to parse these too,  
and I'd rather not
be in  a situation where drupal.org needs to run random php to be  
able to do it's job.

I have a similar idea in the form of site packages. The only problem  
is it will
require a database dump in my version. But at least the package will  
tell you
what versions of which modules it need to be able to run.
