This is actually how I'd originally designed it to work (using newest 
instead of nearest, with ranges much more common). Will have to come 
back to that in 2.1 :)

Anyway, I think it's currently debatable whether a -1 release is enough 
for this case. I'd really like to investigate a "vendor" element of the 
version that allows people that aren't the original project to 
modify/repackage their releases without screwing up the dependency model.
