I don't believe this would be a problem, since all the
mozilla/mozilla-based apps use wrappers that set
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/mozilla. (or -snapshot, whatever)

So the "official" libnspr (the one in the stable releases) could go into
/usr/lib/, and things built against Mozilla would run normally, and the
one in mozilla-snapshot would go into /usr/lib/mozilla-snapshot/, where
it would also be picked up by things compiled against -snapshot.

Bit of rambling there, but I believe I've been relatively clear.
