I think there are cases for pinning specific versions: removing
"degrees of freedom" here can be a sanity saver. As I noted in another
thread, I think that we end up solving the "known good working set"
problem by creating an egg whose only job is to pin down the versions of
all its dependencies.
However, the tradeoff is that any egg which *does* pin versions is going
to be less reusable than one which doesn't.
