If you click on the version number in the EM under "Get Extensions" you
end up in a view called "Show all versions of XXXX" and this allows you
to see all versions that are still available through TER and even
install the desired one. Isn't that the feature you are talking about?
Clicking on the version number seems "ok" as an usability feature for
that. Any improvement suggestion here?
