What I'm doing is leaving 0.18 there (in the crazy hope
that I can go back if I want) and installing 0.19 under
/usr/local where it shouldn't collide with 0.18.

Here's how:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local ...

I understand that they may share directories. Worst is
that they'll share the SQL database. I'm going to look
into replacing all occurences of mythconverg with
mythconverg19. What would be better is if I could
rename the current mythconverg database to something
else. This way, when ubuntu picks up 19, it can
continue using the same database.

If I don't ruin both installs, I'll be fairly amazed. :)
