I don't think it's worth the effort to make it possible to install both
at the same time. OOo 2.0's functionality is a superset of OOo 1.1.5's,
and I'm not aware of any fundamental problems where the old version
would work but the new one wouldn't.
Currently we still need the openoffice-bin package for Solaris, but as
soon as this in openoffice2-bin I'm planning to remove the
openoffice-bin package (and rename the openoffice2-bin to
openoffice-bin, or does anyone think this is confusing, because the
source package will still stay at 1.1.5 for some time.)

With regard to the PKGNAME, I'm going to fix this in a minute.
