I attempted to do the reverse with Watch Me.  Watch Me includes binary
python modules that are not installed by default in OLPC's builds, so
Watch Me includes binaries, but the binaries only work on Fedora 9 (OLPC
8.2.*, I think).  Therefore, it also includes a shim layer that ensures
that the bundled binary modules always have lower priority than
system-installed modules if they are installed.

So I recommend not assuming that the priority only goes one way.
