I suppose these could fall under the compatibility packages thing we
have been talking about for things like newer boost or the like. 

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Conflicts#Compat_Package_Conflicts

I think we are drving down a slippery slope here tho. 
A downside of this kind of thing also is packages or people who do 'yum
install /usr/bin/mysqld'. They aren't really sure what they will get
there. 

I wonder if this wouldn't be better in IUS? 

Or talk with upstream about renaming things so it can parallel install,
and then perhaps we could change packages to need 'mysql-database' or
something that could get added as a virtual provides to all of these?

Not sure there's a good answer here.
