I asked srichter on IRC about this, and my understanding is that

  * versions.cfg that is produced from controlled-packages.cfg will
    contain only the latest versions.
  * the PyPI mirror at download.zope.org will have all of the versions
  * people who have an older version of versions.cfg will still be able
    to get the packages mentioned there from download.zope.org

Since versions.cfg is usually referred with a URL, it seems to me this
only matters if you update controlled-versions.cfg in the middle of
someone's buildout run?

Ok, now I'm confused.  If I refer to versions.cfg, won't buildout
download the actual eggs directly from PyPI, rather than looking in
