This might be pretty usefull, and might reduce the load on the central 

Another idea: Add a function of comparing versions to pimp. The current 
plists seem to use a simple string comparison for comparing versions 
and that doesn't always work. As an example, the entry for PyObjC 
contains something like:

	import objc
	if objc.__version__ < "1.0b1":
		raise "old version installed"

That won't work whenever we get around releasing pyobjc-1.0, as "1.0" < 
"1.0b1" :-(.
