Actually, now you mention that, I remember that I had figured I might have 
to temporarily bundle BeautifulSoup (in renamed form) in mechanize for 
this reason -- the setuptools multi-version support doesn't address the 
problem of multiple versions being used *in the same process*.  This isn't 
a problem with applications that depend on specific versions of libraries, 
but it is a problem with libraries that depend on other libraries.  I 
wonder if PJE might be sympathetic to this problem...
