Re: Site packages considered harmful comment 000

What major packaging system allows for multiple parallel installations of the same library? Not just in Python, in anything?

I'm not sure if you would consider it a "major packaging system," but GoboLinux? does this fairly well. It installs each package in it's own directory and links to the current 'default' version. But, other than that, I haven't seen anything.
