Tagging specific sub-modules

In a situation where you have modules depending upon other modules how do you 
specify which version of a  
sub-module a module is dependent upon.  
For example, lets say I write Product A which uses Utility Library I will have 
a modules file something  
        utillib src/util  
        prodA src/producta &utillib  
Then I start writing Product B and I need to change the Utility Library in some 
manner which I don't want  
to expose to Product A, maybe remove some legacy support or something, I could 
tag the point where I make  
the changes to serve Product B then the modules file might be:  
        utillib src/lib  
        prodA src/producta & tag=legacy utillib  
        prodB src/productb & tag=nolegacy utillib  
It seems to me there is no way to do this at the moment.  
I have found reference to a patch which claims to do pretty much just this (
 ), is there some reason  
why this hasn't been folded into the main cvs devel?  
Is there perhaps a better way to achieve what I'm after?  
Is what I'm trying to do stupid?
