I wanted to ensure that puppet-agent 1.9.0 was not allowed on my boxes and realized there was no way for me to do so without resorting to RPM version string. I don't want to pin it to 1.8.4 or 1.9.2, nor do I want to play roulette and specify 'latest' since broken builds show up from time to time. I should be able to specify the well-known nomenclature that Module metatdata.json uses.

ensure =>  ">= 4.8.2 < 5.0.0"

Not sure how this can be made to work since not all package managers use Semver.
