[LAU] [OT] qt4/qt5 on same system ?

Is anyone here successfully running a parallel installation of Qt4 and 
Qt5 ? I want to install the latest SuperCollider3 which now requires 
Qt5. I'm on Fedora 19 with Planet CCRMA extensions, it's been happy with 
Qt4, but now I need to consider installing Qt5. The question: Can I go 
ahead and install Qt5 in parallel with the existing Qt4 ? If there are 
known problems with Linux audio software perhaps someone is already 
aware of them and can warn me before I take action.

I'm particularly wary of this kind of thing. I recently hosed an entire 
system during a routine installation of components from the F19 repos - 
yes, in certain circumstances Fedora will quietly let you destroy your 
system without warning - and I'd like to avoid a repeat of that scenario.
