Maybe you rather want to add a rev=X parameter to the original Include

Please not that the original Include macro has this:

Dependencies = ["time"] # works around

So it also works around some bugs by disabling caching.

That means that the text_python formatter was malfunctioning somehow.
You never should see those <<<>>> placeholders in the output.

Hopefully the Include crap will be fixed when we merge the DOM formatter
repo into the main repo (will take a while, don't hold your breath).
