Nailing down the versions of packages is the only way I can see to
reliably exclude beta code from a product. I'd like to be able, at some
point, to distribute an app with eg. a buildout.cfg and a setup.py in a
way that I am sure that the receiver of the package will get an
_identical_ piece of code, not some other versions that I didn't
test with...

Kind regards,
