Jeff Hammel and myself were going over a problem with -f seemingly being
ignored in easy_install, and it took us a while to realize that you have
to do something like "easy_install -f 'url1 url2 ...'", and you can't do
"easy_install -f url1 -f url2".
It's literally been years that I've been unaware of this, and confused
by the results. I think easy_install should give an error if you
provide multiple -f's (or make it work if you do so).
