Before reading this, I modified pkgxmldir in OpenSAML's
schemas/ to install the schema files under
/usr/share/xml/opensaml2.  This way version 1 and 2 packages don't
have to conflict, but I'm not yet sure whether the SP2 could be
configured to look for the schema files there.

Do you think Shib2 can work this way, or had I better undo this ASAP?
Thanks for all the valuable comments,
