This sounds like a good solution if it indeed is technically possible. Such 
things have been done to other software packages too. Debian for example has 
separate GnuTLS and OpenSSL binary packages of some network libraries for very 
similar reasons.

This seems reasonable, but would it be possible to make the list public? When 
I try to access the archives I get "Access to this page is restricted (either 
to project members or to project administrators) and you do not meet the 
requirements to access this page. Please contact the administrator of this 
project for further assistance. "
