Bug Description

this would help with:

get versions via vcs tags
nightly builds

whatever, i'm not yet creative

something like

options(
  setup(
    version provided by "vellum.ext.vcs.version_by_tag"
  )
)

might be nice

Changed in vellum:
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Confirmed
summary: - there is no way to have smart options that figure the value via a save
- "provider'
+ options should have a way to figure the actual value by a
+ callback/"provider"

too complex, should be in a different tool
