Hi all,

recently we had a discussion about introducing something like 
PKGREVISION for Makefile.common. Today I have noticed that this kind of 
thing would be really useful, as it is a tedious task to find out all 
packages that use a specific file.

My proposal is to have a list, maybe called PKGREVISION_BUMPERS, that 
each package can append some values. The number of values would then be 
added to the PKGREVISION. For debugging, it may be a good idea to use 
the name of the file wanting the PKGREVISION bump as the value.
