Sub-Web Application Projects and Multiple versions of Third Party DLL's

I have a question, and a feeling that it might be a stupid one but here goes.

Is it possible with WCSF to use different versions of third party assemblies in different modules (Sub-Web application projects) and deploy them to the same main Web Application Project.

for example. We have two modules that are Sub-Web application projects. One module called Assessments uses version 4.03 of a third party grid control in an assembly called TPGrid.dll, another module called Careplan requires the functionality of version 5.1 of the same third party grid control in a different version of the assembly with the same name TPGrid.dll. The assessments module is very complex and we do not yet want to upgrade to use version 5.1 of the assembly because it would break a lot of existing functionality, but we need the functionality of version 5.1 in the Careplan module.

Is it possible to do this? Am I asking too much of WCSF to enable this?

Thanks,
Cameron

I don't think this will work, but if you can somehow get it working, let the community know.
