I'm not very familiar with pip, but I don't think that's an issue for
Buildout. Buildout also has the ability to pin the version of all
packages, but I don't think that's what Jens and I want in this case.
We want an authority to provide a regularly updated list of Repoze
package versions known to probably work together. Thankfully, the BFG
index is serving that purpose, except that it's not easy to combine that
list with the rest of PyPI. I think the problem would be solved if that
index took the form of a versions.cfg (auto-generated would be fine).
