[plt-scheme] Another PLaneT Question

Is there any way to change the meta-data on a previous version? There is a
version 2.0 and 2.1 there now. I changed the meta-data for the 2.1 version
so that it required version 5.0 (although I probably should use 4.90, since
that is the candidate release), but I can't change it for the 2.0 version.
Unfortunately, if anyone running V4 requires the package (without specifying
an older version), it will load 2.0 - because there is no
required-core-version defined for it. That will fail because it uses #lang
