The conservative version would only have bug fixes, so over time it would 
require very little maintenance.

I don't think it would require different names, a major version would suffice. 
It would be like with the Linux kernel where 2.2/2.4/2.6 differs 
drastically(same scheme is used in Apache), but it's still the same project. 
It's quite common to have a stable branch and a "move forward" branch(KDE, 
GNOME, to name a few).

Saying "This would in effect be two different computer programs" is to 
conclude the whole point of the idea. The point is to separate the two 
mutually exclusive ideas of conservatism, and supplying a piece that is 
designed how users actually wants it.
