I have a solution but not about priorities.

The solution depends on how you add packages to your home environment.

If you are referencing them as variables, you can change the variable name of
your package, or directly referencing it with (@ (my test-2) emacs-subed).

If you are using the specification->package procedure, you can change the name
field of your package definition.
