 It would be good if modules could be annotated with some metadata (version
 comes to my mind) so that tools using the lens can use that information in
 some manner (compatibility checks, ...).

 This could be as simple as adding another keyword to the lens grammar so
 that one could write a lens like:
 {{{
 module Foo =
    version "1.0.0"
    author "John Doe"
    description "A lens for Foo. Doesn't support the advanced foobar
 constructs but is useful in most scenarios."
 ...
 }}}
 this metadata could be placed under /augeas/load during the load()
