I've got gzdoom and gzdoom-legacy... in that case it's because the
older version still works fine on low-spec systems (don't need OpenGL
3.0 or proprietary drivers, etc).
Also love (the game engine) and 2 older versions (love-legacy072
and love-legacy080), because incompatible changes were made, games
developed with the older versions won't run with the new. Sorta like
python 2 vs. python 3.
