[Distutils] mr.developer with older buildout

I'm stuck on zc.buildout 1.4.4, but I'd like to use the latest 
mr.developer. I've got the special stick-to-buildout-1.4.4 bootstrap, 
but if I add mr.developer to the "extends=", it grabs zc.buildout 1.5.2...

Ok, I'm pinning it to 1.4.4 and zc.recipe.egg to 1.2.2. Seems OK that way.

But now buildout-versions suddenly starts spitting out a version list 
for versions that I *really* have pinned:

Jinja2 = 2.6
Pygments = 1.4
Sphinx = 1.0.7
mr.developer = 1.18
BeautifulSoup = 3.2.0
Django = 1.3
argparse = 1.2.1

Well, mr.developer is the only unpinned one. But why does the rest 
suddenly pop up? Before mr.developer, buildout-versions was nice and quiet.
