There's a better way to do this by just having different shared library
file names and sonames for each of the shared library packages.  Then
the -dev packages can conflict, while one can install multiple packages
using the different shared libraries simultaneously, not one-at-a-time
as update-alternatives would do.

Note this would also allow simultaneous install of hdf5-tools and
libhdf5-mpi-dev which is required to build several HDF5 reverse-depends,
such as med-fichier.  This represents a major regression vs. 1.8.6 and
should be fixed as soon as possible.

I'll work on a patch tomorrow and will post it to this bug.
