Going to bump this topic... Would like an opinion before I open a JIRA
on this.

Subject: Should force mode work for ivy:install?

Today I used ivy:install to move a certain revision of a module from one
repository (chain) to another repository.   I was somewhat surprised to
see that Ivy magically chose a newer version than I specified.   

I cannot think of any use case for ivy:install where it would be a good
idea to do this.   In my opinion, all the inputs to ivy:install should
be used in a fixed manner regardless of resolver force behavior.   Is
this reasonable thinking?  Would someone look into this if I create a
JIRA issue?
