No, that's not what I meant ;-)

Sorry, should have been more clear in my mail. With "in parallel to the 
packages from EL" I meant: EL continues to ship for example speex as 
speex-1.0.5-4.el5_1.1, and we ship speex 1.2 as "speex12-1.2-4" or 
something with its contents in a special path. Of cause all apps in EPEL 
that need that speex then need special treatment to look in that special 
path for speex.
