Try installing the module in another directory and 'use lib q(path_to_mod);'
I'd watch trying to run both versions under something like mod_perl,
however, because things will get very ugly very quickly.
'perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=somewhere' should get you most of the way there,
IIRC. For more info: 'perldoc ExtUtils::MakeMaker'
The other possibility is to change the name of the module from DBD::Pg to
something else DBD::TestPg or something like that. In this case you would
be able to use both in the same script or in a mod_perl env.
