Also there is yet another, generic possiblity:
A stub-library generator.
Given two libraries, it will generate a third that contains
all public symbols of both, and will upon load itself load
the "best" that is available, modifying all its functions to
just jump on to the appropriate one from that library.
In principle a LD_PRELOAD wrapped into a library (and I
suspect that my suggestion is not even the nicest possible
way to do it).
