This _should_ work for new installation because extra args are passed
to install.packages.

So I would expect the following to do what you want:

biocLite("somePackage", installWithVers=TRUE)

Let me know if you try this and it doesn't work.  We don't have
automated tools to deal with updating BioC packages at this time and
so no way to installWithVer :-)

Should this be considered for a default?
