I think I need to clarify:
spell imaginary-spell is added with version 1 in the distant past
spell imaginary-spell is updated with a security patch on day 1 to devel
on day 7 test grimoire is re-downloaded on computer-foo.
on day 7 imaginary-spell is recompiled via a sorcery rebuild
(or maybe an update from version 0)
spell imaginary-spell is updated on day 14 to test with security patch
***problem cause*** The UPDATED value is listed as "day 1"
on day 20, computer-foo is updated.
with UPDATED listed as day 1 on imaginary-spell and compile date is listed
as day 7, imaginary-spell's security update is not triggered for recompile
I'm just hoping for some way to avoid that. This also happens when
scribe update is run a time significantly before an update, not just
when we have lagged updates to the grimoire.
