I can't imagine a reason why you'd want to load an older version. If
the latest in the universe is broken it doesn't belong into the
universe. Also I'm not sure that not removing old versions is
compatible with the mission statement of universes. Since all packages
in a universe are supposed to work together that would then have to be
extended to all possible combinations of versions of packages.
