Two sphinx versions in one execution?

So I have two systems on two different sphinx versions…

One is 0.9.9 and the other is 1.10

They work completely fine separate of each other but the problem is I have one search page that ends up searching both systems, resulting in a major obvious conflict.

The two sphinxapi.php files are different but use same function names, constants, etc.

Any ideas how to work around this issue besides upgrading the 0.9.9 to 1.10?

There is only one solution, the one you don’t want to do.
