[Fedora-packaging] Two packages that want to own the same parent directory

I have two separate pieces of Python code (one pure Python, one that is
C++ code that has a Swigged Python binding) that each want to live in a
package named qpid. (they're both Python bindings for the Qpid project)

Is it possible to have two different packages (they're not subpackages
of some other package) live in a directory like
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/qpid without either one explicitly
owning the directory qpid? A user can potentially install one or both.
Their code will all live inside of subdirectories of qpid (either
messaging or messagingc).

How do I handle that from a packaging perspective?
