thanks for your replies. IMHO:
* the current situation is unsustainable
* the best option would be for saga developers to adopt a more standard
approach, e.g. avoid mixing up bugfixes (in point releases) and
changes in the parameters (only in major releases), and keep backward
compatibility for previous parameters in all life cycle of minor releases
* if this is not feasible, the approach by Johan (maintaining a saga
LTR) seems the best one, as it is a general solution, provided it is
also followed by an appropriate versioning and dependency management for
* bundling is an option mainly on windows; not generally feasible on
most Linux distros
* forking and embedding involves significant maintenance costs; I'm
unsure it would be acceptable for more rigorous packagers, and it should
be kept as a really last resort
* another beautiful option would be a complete merge between the two
projects, unifying the code base, but probably I'm dreaming here :)

All the best.
