Ah, Good Point.  I (wrongly?) assumed we were looking to put a minimum
version of unittest2 in requirements.  Which would cause this
undesired behaviour.  However, that doesn't need to be the case.  I
assume with this approach we WILL put an upperbound on unittest2 in
stable/* requirements?

If so - my point is mute. Pah.

Kind Regards,
