The sample implementation will have to include specified packages.  As
new versions of a package are released, the sample implemention will
surely pick-up newer versions (not immediately), but we do need to pay
attention to the version of each particular package so that everyone
tests the same thing.

I think version numbers will be necessary sometimes because behavior
can change from version to version.
