'''Deprecate one Spack install in favor of another

Spack packages of different configurations cannot be installed to the same
location. However, in some circumstances (e.g. security patches) old
installations should never be used again. In these cases, we will mark the old
installation as deprecated, remove it, and link another installation into its

It is up to the user to ensure binary compatibility between the deprecated
installation and its deprecator.
