If I always want ivy to pick the oldest, why don't I just say "1.0",  
instead of saying "the oldest 1.+"?  We want to have notions like "the  
latest 1.+", because version numbers keep growing, and we don't know  
what the latest is at a particular moment.  However that's not the  
case on the opposite end - we always know what the oldest version is,  

Or maybe I'm missing some obvious use cases. 8-)
