Generally speaking, there are 3rdparty libs that are versioned. 
There are new releases on a monthly or less basis.
We also want to be able to use older releases at the same time

so it looks like this:
//depot/thirdparty/product/1.2.3/lib/... //buildclient/thirdparty/lib/...

later it may be changed to something like:
//depot/thirdparty/product/1.2.5/lib/... //buildclient/thirdparty/lib/...

althgough some other builds may still be using the 1.2.3 versions.

people are loath to include all the versions in the build space, for
space reasons.

I suppose we could just checkin new versions on top of each other, but
then builds would require a pre-sync to specific versions.
