That's not really an answer, unless downgrading works. For example, a 
recently created venv would contain the latest setuptools, and perhaps it 
would be required by other distributions in the venv. How then would e.g. 
SQLAlchemy specify that an older setuptools version should be used? Would pip 
downgrade the venv's setuptools to an older version? Even if it did, might 
that not break other distributions in the venv?
