Thanks for the patches.

I'd been wondering if a package with no curr, only test versions made 
any sense at all, but I guess this example makes it clear while it's 
probably not very useful in calm, it could be useful in the mksetupini, 
where the output is an overlay setup.ini which is going to be merged by 
setup with a setup.ini which does have a curr version...
