Further thoughts on this, if integrated with something like libraries.io or 
other that can alert to new versions. It may be possible to fully automate 
routine version bumps. Only requiring a human to bump if/when things fail.

Routine version bumps suck, seem a waste of any humans time if it can be 
automated. This tool is a step in such direction, but can be further expanded 
upon and integrated into other things for more automation :)
