OK, here's how I'm saying it:
	GNOME 2 may be installed in parallel with the GNOME 1.4.1 	release
	libraries, allowing you to use GNOME 2's primary desktop 	functions
	&mdash; panels, Nautilus, etc. &mdash; while also running 	applications
	that have not yet been ported and therefore still require GNOME 	1.4
	    For some GNOME 1.x apps, you need the GNOME 1.x 	control-center
	    gnome-pilot for use in evolution).

I wouldn't mind if someone wants to say something more elaborate, or
enumerate all the apps that might clash because newname=oldname.
