I think it is technically OK. Well, I'm sure about it, I've done that. The
installation now denies this for some reason totally unknown to me.

If the installation let us install several versions simultaneously, I'd be
more than happy to edit my rewrite to cover that.

If anyone knows about the install restriction, please drop a line so that I
can cover the denial in the docs, OR a possible workaround or even a real
solution. :-)

I haven't tried this personally, but do the .exe distributions work better?

Well, that combination I haven't tried. I only saw that two 2.0 versions
don't work too well concurrently. ;-) But for example, first installing 2.0
from the MSI and then installing 1.3 from the EXE (which actually contains
the MSI) seems to work without any gotchas.
