Well, you can't install 3.2 with 3.1 installed, or vice versa. I have no
idea what the bulk build system does in this case. What does it do if you
mark packages with different names as conflicting?

My main concern about giving them all the same package name is whether
there's any precedent for this. If there is, I'll do it, if not, at the
very least I'd have to ask on tech-pkg, I would think.

True. But perhaps just a warning in DESCR and MESSAGE would be enough to
alert users about what they're getting into? In fact, I think we want
that warning either way.
