Maybe it would help to make a proper destinction between the
bundle you are working on for implementing a plip
(typically the plip branches in plone/at/collective)
versus the bundle you submit for review.
Already today we may have both.

For the one you are working on you then use trunk versions
of dependencies in order to stay up-to-date. This would
be the bundle from which to merge in the end.

The review bundle on the other hand could be "frozen" by
pointing to explicit revisions that are known to work together.

That way, we the reviewers could be sure to always be able to
look at working code at the price of maybe not seeing the
latest revision (but if there's a dev bundle also we would be
even free to chose).

Would that make sense?
