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.
