Well, right now we don't really have _any_ packaging guidelines for
parallel installation of similar packages, but I don't see why following
the openssl model for libraries and using alternatives for binaries
wouldn't suffice for the majority of cases.
We need to document them specifically. Assuming that everyone would know
how openssl is packaged to mimic that model wouldnt work. Might be a
naive question but why not always stick the version number in front of
the packages instead of using compat-* and obsoleting older versions
like we do currently?
