the right way is to first fix the driver packages so that they use update-alternative and can be installed all at the same time.
second, once that has happened, live-config needs a config script to act on pci-id and/or boot parameters to choose alternatives for the desired driver.
That script wouldn't be all that difficult, but the list of drivers to ID mappings would be difficult.
The detection code used in the X drivers would be a place to start. And even that is incomplete.
