This won't fly under Linux. Distributions explicitely move opensymbol in a
standard place instead of having it lost deep inside the OO.o tree
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=2100031

Also, under Linux (still) fontconfig will always use the most recent version of
any given font (as in: font metadata), regardless of where it is installed 

Though it's a good idea to rename the font if it has changed so much old
documents referencing the previous version will break if fed the new one
