I just noticed that it names the wheel incorrectly: I just did "Flask" and it
named the wheel "Werkzeug..." and the wheel contained the files for both
Werkzeug and Flask, but not Jinja2 because I already have that installed.

I'll look at the bug which causes the wrong name to be used, but it should work
in an isolated venv (i.e. with no system site-packages). I'll update the Gist
when I've found what the problem is.
