Hardy+1 Idea: GoboLinux Filesystem Hierarchy?

what i think is very useful about the gobo system is that it trivially handles multiple versions of a package.
with debian systems there are sometimes packages with multiple versions, eg apache2, but i think it is extra work for the packagers, so it does not happen often
Maybe this would solve problems with backports breaking other installed software. Firefox does not get backported because so many packages are built on it. But if it was trivial to have several firefox versions then everything is easier.
