I don't think that will work, because it must be a 'version' directory 
(vx.x.x.x format)
(that's also why we need a version number that won't conflict with a 
microsoft number)

Yep, but for now we can have one just call the other (or duplicate 
dlls), they contain the same functionality, just optimized for 
single/multiple CPUs as far as I could find out.

That would be nice indeed.
