[Distutils] Changing distribution versions runtime

Hello all,

I would like at runtime to change the used version of installed egg ... (for
example based on some condition import specific version)

and the only solution i end up with is to remove from the 'working_set'
'by_key' hash the best matched version, added when importing pkg_resources,
and then 'resolve' the wished one and add it. otherwise i end up with
version conflict.

I do not want to add version in package naming (package_0_1) ... but that
would be the fastest solution :)

What's the best thing i can do?
