Yeah, I think that's what I want. However, if I put eggname==dev in the
eggs option, I get a resolution error. See my last reply to PJE's last
reply to me a few minutes ago.
I've confirmed that if I just use find-links as above and then list the
egg name without a version spec, it does *not* try to re-download (at
least as far as I can tell).
