Noone is keeping you from taking a snapshot of the current egg repository
and providing support and fixes for old eggs. Please let me know when I
can use this repository.

That won't even be necessary. The current development version of
chicken-setup (darcs head, 2.509) can download from a SVN repository,
together with a given revision number. So if you need a specific version
of an egg, just do

% chicken-setup -svn
-revision 2 ajax

(of course this won'l help users of older chickens)

Tagged eggs can be accessed with an URL that reflects the particular SVN tag
(which not all eggs provide).

I have also added a "(required-chicken-version VERSION)" to chicken-setup.
