Haven't we agreed two weeks ago that playground packages shouldn't 
conflict with base system? that means new versions won't be in 
playground, for those pure copr should be enough.. the playground is 
supposed to be more for packages that cannot be in fedora due packaging 
guidelines issues (bundling is great example). At least this what I got 
from the meeting two weeks ago..
