I'm fairly sure that removing them is *not* the right solution. For example, that might have broken other applications. (After all, I released b4 for a reason.)
The right short-term fix in this case was to use b2 in grok until b5 was released.
As Tres pointed out we should just avoid that everybody gets those immediately anyway, but we should keep them as historic releases in general.
Only getting released versions would probably have just delayed the problem until it would have been harder to solve. I was able to address this quickly because the changes that caused it were fresh in my mind. It would have been harder if the problem were reported much later.
This particular problem was due to a circular import, which is a very hard thing to test for sadly. We need to fix this.
