No, for anything non-trivial this is a _big_ no-go.
Dependency consistency can only be guaranteed within one
distribution. There's no guarantee that packages with the different
name from two distros don't provide files with identical names.
Equally, package with the same name might provide different files
(or even pack totally unrelated software).
Software/libs written in C++ and compiled with diffent versions of GCC
might not link at all, or, worse, might link but will not work correctly.
Really: DONT'T DO THAT!
