I know what you mean - sometimes things are just *too easy* to believe
with Python.

This is one of those:
Just make sure you get the prefix right at installation time, and
Python takes care of the rest., the two installations will be kept as
separate as as the directories you choose.

Other things are more difficult: I cannot see how your script can
choose an interpreter before the script is running.#

OTOH one script could easily choose the correct interpreter for
another script, e.g.

#! /bin/bash

if $MOON_IS_BLUE
then
	~/python24/bin/python script.py
else
	/usr/bin/python script.py
fi
