This seems backwards to me.
Consider this example
$ cat buildout.cfg
I-forgot-the-suggested-new-spelling-for-a-versions-file = versions.txt
parts = ...
$ cat mg.cfg
extends = buildout.cfg
versions = versions
SomePackage = overridden_version
I would expect bin/buildout -c mg.cfg to use my overridden version from
mg.cfg, not the one from versions-file.txt.
Also, having two similar but slightly distinct mechanisms for version
pinning? I'm -1 on that.
