Hi. Yes it's possible.

The logic was that old versions should continue to be available and 
downloadable so that, if anyone builds something with a dependency upon a 
particular version of a macro, they can point to it without fear that a 
newer version will overwrite it and be incompatible with what they've done.

I've added a little code, so that you can optionally link to the object

For example:
