This is the only and only sane structure to support in a distribution.

I've specified /usr/packages/<pkg>-<ver> in my proposal some years
ago, but that is just a detail.

Others use /usr/pkg for this approach, but I think this idea should
be way more widespread and used for the base system as well.

Linking ../bin/* of the "current" versions to /usr/bin ensures users
can use the software as usual (same goes for lib/ and sbin/).

I hope more people will jump on this train in near future.
