What happens if I compile daemontools-0.76 on a machine with
daemontools-0.70 installed? The new binaries are somewhere in /package, nor?
And the old ones are still in /usr/local/bin/, and this one is in the path.
Old binaries are still used. Who introduces real-world problems here?
Don't call it theory, we had this issue. Don't remember wether it was on
dns@ or qmail_(_at_)__(_dot_)_

Oh, and why is daemontools-0.7[5|6] a _new_ package? Isn't it just an update 
for daemontools-0.70?
