Installing thrift through homebrew

Currently thrift support in homebrew is broken; brew versions thrift returns nothing. Here is a list I got from a collegae:

$ brew versions thrift 0.9.0 git checkout 3b8bb74 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.8.0 git checkout e5475d9 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.7.0 git checkout 141ddb6 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.6.1 git checkout 54ff633 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.5.0 git checkout 0476235 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.4.0 git checkout 4523877 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.3.0 git checkout 67ec3c0 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb 0.2.0 git checkout d0efd9e /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb HEAD git checkout c4decd7 /usr/local/Library/Formula/thrift.rb

With this information in mind, continue to stackoverflow for more information on how to install a specific version.

I had to do brew -v install thrift (with -v), otherwise installation just halted.
