Don't forget the opposite direction: multiple packages for multiple APIs
of some framework. Compat-packages in disguise. For example, Qt 3 and Qt
4. Both are stable major releases. Now, if a big application, that was
developed for Qt 3 by several dozen upstream developers, is not available
for Qt 4 yet, the single packager cannot be expected to take over the
porting from one API to another.
