But then my point wasn't that you would use it for Zope3 eggs, but for
everything else. There's a lot of eggs, even in etch. And in lenny there
will be even more. There are few pre-release/alpha/beta versions of
eggs. In fact, a lot of maintainers prefer to release older/stabler
versions than the latest release.  And the only changes that happen to
releases are security updates.

Think of it as a stable base upon which to build.

As above, not the point.

Now, how would you use the Grok gated community with the sqlalchemy
gated community if they had common dependencies, and those dependencies
were at different versions in the two communities?

Of course, you could make one _very_ large gated community and "freeze"
it as a release every now and then. Er, basically the same as what
distros are doing, hopefully making their life much easier;)
