As far as I understand (and use it on a daily basis), parallel deployment allows to upgrade
a webapp to a new version with no downtime, new sessions being handled by the newest version
and existing ones beinig handled by the version already handling them.

That the only case where I see parallel deployment using multiple versions. And so I see no
case where new sessions arr handled by two different versions.

So, it seems to me that // deployment is not a fit for your requirements.

I find them interesting anyway, as I would really like to be able to have a finer control
on the selection of the "current" version.

This would allow transparent downgrades, without removing or stopping a version and help solve
a stupid problem I had several times : // deployment sort versions alphabetically. So, version
1.1.9 is prefered to 1.1.10, for instance...
