As Frank pointed out, It's common to have more than one TeX distribution installed. I have had TeTex and TeXlive installed for quite some time and indeed multiple versions of TeXlive can live together in /usr/local. Maybe that would work for you. Anyway it sounds as though you're happy with your setup which is the main thing. I'll probably only ever use a small subset of the TeXlive distribution, there is so much there.
