Just to pick a couple nits...

I'm not sure "pinning" is the best word, but I don't have any thoughts on what would be better.

Does the pinning info have to be in an optional file? Would it be better to have it be an optional part of the manifest? There'd be one less file to carry around.

I didn't follow the discussion thread very closely... If either of these "issues" were debated there, I do *not* want to start rehashing them. Furthermore, IMHO both are pretty minor (especially the first one... it's completely subjective).

+1, either way
