subversion introspection

I have a script that uses several home-grown modules.

These modules live in the directory "$FindBin::RealBin/lib" (here
$FindBin::RealBin stands for the parent directory of the script).

The script and all the modules are under revision control, via

OK, now I'd like a good way to cause the script to fail if it
detects that it (i.e. the copy of the software that is executing)
is not the most recently committed version.

Before I roll my own, I thought I'd ask around if there's already
a good way to do this.


NOTE: In my address everything before the first period is backwards;
and the last period, and everything after it, should be discarded.

You want your script to "see" if all modules are the latest version(s)?

Maybe using the keywords property and put the version in a scalar, and
check this version in your script for all modules?
