Believe me you don't want to use alternative. Not in your worst
Alternatives is very good when you need to coax applications that
hardcode paths to switch between implementations. For everything else it
sucks big time. (When all's said alternatives is just semi-automated
Better define naming/location rules so every implementations can coexist
in parallel, and a configuration files which define the one to use.
