[plt-scheme] feature request for PLaneT

Dear All,

I've got a feature request for PLaneT.

Would it be possible to let the require planet form
check (probably asynchronously) for newer releases
of the included modules? For example:

Suppose, I'd require:

(require (planet "roos.scm" ("oesterholt" "roos.plt" 1 0)))

It will get the latest major=1 release from PLaneT, which
is up to this moment, the major=1 and minor=4 release.

If I release major=1 and minor=5, I would be very glad, if
dependent modules would download the newer 1 5 version

If I released major 2, minor 0, that would indicate that
an API break had occured, and the newer version would
not be downloaded.
