I read the packaging page at
<URL:>.  It looks like
you might be interested in the slashpackage system:

With slashpackage and SPF, it's possible to have multiple versions of
a package installed simultaneously, and it's possible for each package
to use a specific version of each of its dependencies.  This does not
require any special tagging of binaries, or any kernel changes to make
files visible or invisible.
