+1. No ranges. If you want to update a version in your own app's 
buildout you should be able to override it, of course, but the KGS 
should be a fixed point.

That sounds reasonable, as long as it is documented. I got confused at 
first about the term 'test branch', but you just mean a non-maintenance 
branch of a package to do some development on. The special thing is here 
that we'd wait for the buildbot to do the testing on different platforms.

I wonder whether we couldn't use snakebite.org infrastructure for the 
testing. I'd be good if someone could manually trigger a cross-platform 
cross-interpreter test instead of having to wait for buildbots.
