No, but I assume that was a rhetorical question, as you're in the
field and know better than I. But we were talking about why one might
need more than one version at once, not whether it's possible now.
I understand this thread to date as demonstrating:
1) one doesn't need more than one version right now (since it's
2) numbers of people think this is a valid use case, but lots of work
remains to be done to make it viable.

Do you propose SL explictly not support this (closing the bug as
WONTFIX or something, presumably) and - separately - let it be a
goal/feature request once there are sponsors? That seems sensible to

This can go two ways - I think a "target audience" principle / goal
(that you asked after / proposed in another thread) would imply how
used / valuable we thought this feature was: the younger the target
audience, the less important the feature would seem to be.
