Per another thread: you could do this manually by allowing PLT to
download the desired versions into the cache, checking that code into
version control (aka vendor branches), setting all of the dependencies
to exact versions, and then installing that everywhere you deploy your

It actually doesn't sound so bad when you think of it, at least if you
