A controlled way of ignoring version constraints (mainly upper bounds,
actually) is certainly on my TODO list for the new solver. The main
issue to work out is a good way how to control the disabled bounds via
the command line, because you usually don't want to ignore all of
them. Currently, my UI-preference is a flag


with the semantics that all dependencies on foo will be changed to
allow foo-1.3 to be chosen. Would that be ok? Other suggestions?
