You are right and this has already happened. For example antlr 3.5.2 is
incompatible with antlr 3.2, and we worked around this issue by
introducing an antlr3.2 package.

The good news is that antlr 3.x is not going to evolve anymore, upstream
is now working on antlr 4.x.

Well, couldn't the tarball of the python-antlr3 package simply consist
in the content of the runtime/Python3 directory? Repacking the tarball
isn't difficult. That's how the C runtime was packaged I believe
