I'll use the httpd package as the 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.
