Sure.  I was just saying that you now have sufficient logic to support
pulling versionless eggs in the correct versions relative to eggs whose
versions *are* specified.  I think this should be the default behavior
when at least one egg version is given, actually.  Why would you want
the latest versions of eggs when they are inconsistent with other eggs,
except in the situations where --force-versions is appropriate?  But if
you don't like that, you could have two new switches --latest-versions
(for the present behavior) and --consistent-versions (for the behavior
I am proposing).

Fair enough: an explicit inconsistency without --force-versions should
abort with an error.

Another minor suggestion: a switch --install-script to specify the name of, when you have multiple possibilities in the same egg directory.

First known example of political correctness:   John Cowan
After Nurhachi had united all the other
Jurchen tribes under the leadership of the      address@hidden
Manchus, his successor Abahai (1592-1643)
issued an order that the name Jurchen should       --S. Robert Ramsey,
be banned, and from then on, they were all           The Languages of China
to be called Manchus.
