FWIK dpkg-divert it's used when two packages want to install both a
file with the same path, or to avoid that dpkg will overwrite that
file when installing a package.

So to reply to your question, you can only have one version of a file
and dpkg-divert will preserve it when you install a newer package
which contains that file. You choose which to use with dpkg-divert,
but you should look to the man page cause i've seldom, if never, used

Hope this was enough clear.
