 I released a new [wiki:pkg-apt] testing package today. When I started
 setting up an environment to test what it will do in an upgrade situation
 I realised I need to put Osgeo4W into an older state, which means
 installing no-longer-current packages first. This isn't so easy.

 I think the easiest approach is likely to be to adapting `osgeo4w-
 regen.sh` and `genini` to generate a setup.ini based on a date stamp. Then
 issuing an instruction like `regen.sh 2014-06-01` would crawl the release
 package tree, ignore any files newer than said date, and generate

 I scanned `genini` for likely places to put a date filter, but my perl is
 too weak for the task. ;-)
