Not sure if this is worth fixing (or even still relevant for 5.0), but if we do so it should probably be in 4.13

This is a misunderstanding of the -override option. It is not used to specify eggs to be installed, but only to provide an egg->version mapping.

The intention makes sense, though. Chicken 5 will have a -from-list option for this purpose.
