I dont know.  

I can understand the reason why anyone builds more than one package,
when one is the stable version, the other is the development version
(like gimp, alsa, semi etc.).  
However you say the reason why you want to build a new package is the
"INCOMPATIBILITY".  So I think you should upgrade it because this
upgrade can be resolove by user.

This is only my optinon, actually.  Therefor you ,of cource, can do as
you think if you dont infrace our policy.
