This can cause problems with installations, like if a package ship with an older version of json.net and overwrites the newer one that we ship with.
To me it's the responsibility of the package developer to test their package install and they will immediately see when things don't work as expected.
What if it's a newer or older version that works perfectly fine with Umbraco, then there's no way of installing it through a package. What if it's a non-medium trust version of log4net which people seem to want to use sometimes? This should also be classified as not backwards compatible (I believe uCommerce ships with a different version of log4net).
It would be NICE if there was a warning when you're about to install the package:
Checkbox (off by default): [ ] Don't overwrite the libraries listed above.
Backwards Compatible: True
