I just tried this via the planet command-line tool in version like this:

  $ raco planet install lizorkin ssax.plt 2 0

and it seemed to install fine. I also tried evaluating this in
drracket in version 5.0:

  #lang racket
  (require (planet lizorkin/ssax:2))

and it too seemed to install fine (altho there is no main file so I
got that error).

If there are, they'd be bugs, I expect.

More specifically, the 4.xx repository also applies to versions 5.xx too.
