Versioned installation directories?

  Something I've been thinking about is what to use for versioned
installation directory naming for LedgerSMB Debian packages; perhaps not
for the standard packages, which currently install
to /usr/share/ledgersmb, but perhaps for optional and/or custom
packages.  The idea would be to allow the installation of multiple
versions on the same system, for things like testing or for
transitioning from one major version to another.

  Of the ways I've thought of, the one I've been leaning towards is to
use directory names like /usr/share/ledgersmb12
or /usr/share/ledgersmb14; that way, it doesn't matter what other
versions might already installed.  And while I don't plan to make this a
part of the standard package build, I am thinking about trying to make
it some kind of package build time option.
