wouldn't this prevent both from being installed and working without
futzing about with symlinks? I don't see what the gain is, and there's
certainly a loss.

unless there is a conflict of some sort, my preference is always to be
able to have multiple packages like this installed and working
simultaneously. the prior art is that we have the acroread plugin
packages for both Firefox and Mozilla.
