I am not. This is a strawman.
What I am saying is that modules on which other modules have versioned
dependencies cause version conflicts if they are not parallel-installable
(which is sadly the case now). There is no need for different versions of
leaf modules to be parallel-installable in most cases. (It could be useful
in some special cases, such as the game Battle for Wesnoth where savegames
are only usable with a specific release branch, but that is not the common
case. For the typical server application, I agree that it would be useless.)
