If you want to install them at the same time, call them different names.
I do it for kannel(_1.2.1-5), kannel-devel(_1.3.1-4) and

If you want the same name, make sure your cvs package have a smaller
version than the new released one, like 4.0.99-20031213.

(Should't 4.1.0-1 be greater than 4.1.0+20031213-1 as '+' (x2B) is less
than '-' (x2D) ? and I guess I recall we would be able to use
4.1.0~20031213-1 after sarge is released, right ?)
