We have many reports of people wanting to install specific versions of
packages, maybe we could have a tool where you could compose your own
catalog from whatever there is available in allpkgs, and allow you to
specify the version of each package. Dependencies would be added

Caveat 1: you would have to specify deps versions too

Caveat 2: It would be easy to compose a broken catalog, e.g. if you
selected an unlucky combination of pkg versions

What do people think? Useful idea? Stupid idea?
