* egg-info and dist-info should generate JSONLD

* sdist, bdist, and wheel should update **append to** the same JSONLD
metadata document

* if there are additional parameters which would be necessary to reproduce
a package(s), those should be included in the package metadata

... the *provenance* of these build artifacts would then be represented in
the package metadata document

is this specific to sdist? nope, sorry, now is the time.
