I don't understand this. What does "configured package" mean? The way I 
understand it, it goes like this:
* You post a couple of versions of the Graphics package into the 3.10 
* I post a couple of versions of the Balloon package into the 3.10 
universe. The Balloon package depends on Graphics, but since I use the 
Graphics package there is a good chance that I've tested it so it should 
be okay.
* Later, you post a new version of the Graphics package. Since you don't 
depend on the Balloon package there is absolutely no guarantee that 
you've ever tested it together (and how could you - every second package 
will depend on Graphics).

The way I read the code, my Balloon package will *automatically* pick up 
the latest version of the Graphics package, without any further explicit 

If I'm mistaken, please correct me.
