So you are not going to allow parallel installations of 1.0 and 1.1 on
the same machine?

This will make the debian postgis packages unusable for us here, as we
often have to maintain different PostGIS installations in parallel.

I'd suggest to have different packages for all supported PostGIS and
Server versions (a two-dimensional matrix), and have only micro releases
 overwrite each other.
