while that would be nice it would mean that where ever you ran circle
you have to make sure that the above mentioned, with the exception of
lua,  are installed on the machine as well

I meant versioning in a general sense was thinking along the lines of
XML files they would definitely be a tagged file and if an type (ie
room, object) were messed up within it's confines you could easily
ignore and move on the the next one assuming the messed up section
didn't invalidate the whole XML file.
