I think that a simple solution, that would not solve this particular problem 
but might help in the future is to have an egg repository for each version. So 
if someone is using an older version of chicken, the chicken-setup will use the 
appropriate repository. However, new eggs wouldn't be available.

Thank you. I was just going to mention that. What do Debian users do  
when they want some new Java package that depends on this years JVM 
+Libs, not last years?

However, being able to explicitly state Chicken-Egg & Egg-Egg version  
requirements would still be useful.
