It is pretty common practice, actually. On debian, a pretty standards-oriented
distro, I have /usr/bin/gcc3.3 and gcc4.0, as well as python2.3 and python2.4.
Then /usr/bin/(gcc|python) is a link to the version I want to use. Just call
your custom version ~/bin/mplayer-cvs or something, or rename them both to
non-default names, and then have ~/bin/mplayer link to the one you would like
