I am interested now in how such versioned packages could be agregated and made avaliable through a centralised service such as PyPi/CPAN, and as to wether such functionality described below will be a spanner in the works for distrobution techniques.

Who sent this note? There has been discussion recently on the 
wxPython-users list about how to support versioning of wxPython. I'd 
love to hear what you've worked out. And yes, I agree this is a real 
week point in Python that would be nice to address Python-wide, rather 
than each package developer coming up with their own scheme.
