One option may be to release 0.10.3 of hacking that removes the cap on pbr.  I
think this would fix the issues on master but I *think* it will cause problems
on ,at least, stable/mitaka where 0.10.x is still the preferred version.

For projects that have constraints support things will be fine as the version
selected for PBR will come from upper-constraints.txt and hacking from
requirements so those projects will get pbr == 1.8.1 and hacking 0.10.3 #winning.

For projects that don't have constraints support which is still quite a few[1]
they'll end up with pbr 2.0.0 which will almost certainly break things.
Probably not in behaviour but more likely with similar VersionConflicts.

Yours Tony.
