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.
