No, thats what I think too. Repackaging into hord32-RPMs is probably
most sane to do. Those who want to use the newer version will just need
to install hord32-... instead of hord-... This way even configuration
files and databases could be kept separately. For upgraders (manually?)
<http://www.horde.org/horde/docs/?f=UPGRADING.html> might be a good reading.

Thats just my €0,02.
