AFAIK the only way to install a package no longer listed on the mirrors 
is to do an "Install from Local Directory" using either an old setup.ini 
or one that has been modified to point at the old version (and of course 
you need to already have the old package for this).

At any rate, thanks go to Brian for confirming this bug; at least we 
know what the problem is, and of course how to work around it.
