Why? First, it is worth observing that the very nature of OBS makes it

there is only one spec file - and therefore package version - for ALL

In other words, it would be impossible for a maintainer to configure a
package to build foobar-1.2 on openSUSE 11.3 but foobar-2.1 on
openSUSE 12.1.

First and foremost get the package into the distro instead of
building it in some random repo. The whole point of the distro is to
be a collection of packages that work together.

Secondly, you can have different versions of foobar in the same
project by naming the source directories e.g. foobar and a
foobar.openSUSE_xy. Only the latter would be build enabled for
openSUSE xy while the former builds for everything else.
