Okay, so the index is set to PyPI's simple index by default, right?
I'm guessing find-links adds locations to search that are checked before
the index is specified, correct?

Indeed. The docs I've written suggest that there is an order and after a
package has been found searching stops.
On IRC today, Philipp suggested that all options specified in find-links
were checked for all packages and the latest version found was used.
Jim, can you clarify what exactly the case is here so I can make sure
the docs aren't misleading people?
