That would be very bad. Old releases are often hidden.

What would be ideal would be for pip and easy_install to only install
non-final releases if asked to. Or at least provide an option to
prefer final releases. Buildout has had a prefer-final option for
years. In an upcoming buildout 2 alpha, this will become the default.
