Different Scala versions should have different package names

Bug Description

Scala minor versions are completely incompatible with each other -- they seem to rewrite half of the spec every few years. A program compiled under one version will almost certainly fail to run under another.

To solve this, I suggest having separate packages such as scala-1.8 and scala-1.9.
