Following Alastair's proposal I've adapted my previous try on this
topic. Here is a summary of the proposed changes from my local git log:
    Make serial and $mpi flavors co-installable

    * Patch autotools configuration to add option --with-flavor which
      append _<flavor-name> to the libraries' names
    * Configure $mpi builds with flavor-name=$mpi
    * link $mpi flavor development libs to
      /usr/lib/$MULTIARCH/$mpi/libhdf5-<legacy-names> (so that existing
      makefiles still work using -L/usr/lib/$MULTIARCH/$mpi)
    * install $mpi flavor include files into /usr/include/$mpi (so
      that existing makefiles still work using -I/usr/include/$mpi)
    * Use alternatives to choose default h5p{cf}c
    * Deactivate patch skip_cxx_inclusion.diff
    * Remove related Conflicts / Provides from debian/control*

I've successfully tested the co-installation with all packages and the
build of an example using each flavor.

All this work was done against upstream release 1.8.13. I've had to bump
the soname to 8 because of the MPI-POSIX driver removal [1].

Of course this will require a transition.

Any comments before I upload to experimental?

Thanks in advance,
