Specifying compat bounds via the REPL

For quite a while, I have wanted the ability to specify compat bounds from the REPL. I came across this PR after doing a search. Does anyone know when this will be added to Julia?

As a related question, does the PR include default compat bounds? Typically, I use the added version as a lower bound. So when I create a new package, I typically have to type the bounds manually. Having a default of this nature would be convenient, and would also ensure reproducibility in cases where people create a project environment without explicit bounds.

Two very handy functionalities. I hope we can have them!


I think this package is a nice stopgap solution. As far as I can tell, there is no way to use the version in the Manifest.toml as a default. Is that true?
