Have you seen the PackageMounting proposal?


Essentially, each package would get its own hierarchy, which would
then be attached to the larger module hierarchy at compile-time
according to compiler options, or Cabal data, or methods as yet
unseen. If, for some reason, you need to import two versions of the
same package, or two packages that have a module name collision, you
can change the default mounting point for one or both.
