Like xemacs20 and xemacs21? or emacs19 and emacs20? Same for mule and

Theres enough of that already, you might just ahve to maintain the old
version if the maintainer is unwilling.


PS: You should get the maintainer to change the 2.0 versions name to
yudit2 or so before any upload is done, otherwise you need to get the
2.0 version removed manually before uploading any 1.5 versions.
