Ah, but it's a very good match for Monticello usage patterns. In  
Monticello, each version of a package is immutable, and identified by  
a UUID. This means that clients don't have to coordinate when  
creating new versions and we can't get "old" versions. A version is  
either available or it isn't; its content can never change.
