With the current evolution of Metacello, this should not be the case. Done
right, what a config loads can be 100% static and repeatable. If you load a
literal version (e.g. '1.4'), which loads literal versions of dependent
projects (which they should unless there is a reason not to, e.g. a loose
dependency like Seaside on OB), which load literal versions all the way
down, it will do the same thing today, tomorrow, and ten years from now.

The only hill to climb now is getting the word out about Metacello
conventions/best practices.

I think "easily loadable" is the correct state, not included by default.
