is not as cool as your version, but provides roughly the same
functionality AFAICS.

I think either of these two improvements would be nice:

- having a list of known-good combinations of tool versions; having
  tested them extensively would be great, otherwise we might at least
  document some sort of minimal-version-requirement-table.
- a change that lets the script automatically install the most recent
  stable releases of each tool.
