The problem is that both extension contain the same service. The extension which
is last installed will overwrite the service from the first extension.

Enhancement: Warn user that they overwrite an existing extension. Allow user to
abort installation. Allow user to proceed with installation but do not overwrite
the existing service. The extension may then work with the existing service and
shall be displayed as enabled. 
Then the existing service must be prevented to be uninstalled, because other
extensions may depend on it.
