Whether this actually works depends on how the packages have been built.  
There should not be any overlapping files between the packages. And then
just naming the packages differently would be enough (which is what I'm
doing for qt upgrades on rh9/fc1). Sorry I did not respond to this
earlier, I've been too busy. I have to try swGTK 2.5 and see if the
programs that are using wxGTK are compatible (at the source level) with
this version. If they are I could upgrade....
