It's an option I've been considering. Unfortunately OSG upstream has
committed a couple of decisions which render parallel installation
complicated (e.g. they dropped pkgconfig support :( )

The devel libs conflict, so the only option I see is installing OSG-2's
devel libs into a %{_libdir}/osg-2.0 subdir.

That's one option.

This would be fine with me. 

Trying to gain clarity on other people's opinions had been the reason
for why I am asking ;) 

I had hopedn, people were answering "nobody cares about OSG-1, go ahead
and dump OSG-1" ...
