Custom Firmware Package Fallback

I had an idea for an enhancement to the Custom Firmware Packages, how about a fall back option so that a user could easily return to a previous version of any installed package?
One possible way to do this would be to add a 'previous' field to CONTROL/control and then use this field to execute a opkg install screensaver-Maze_1.0.0 --force-reinstall

humax# cat /mod/tmp/EZRA/tmp/screensaver-Maze_1.0.1_mipsel/CONTROL/control
Package: screensaver-Maze
Priority: optional
Section: misc
Version: 1.0.1
Architecture: mipsel
Maintainer: Ezra Pound
Depends: screensaver
Description: An alternative screensaver.
Previous: 1.0.0
