sharepoint deploy resource files via feature

I have a solution that deploys resource files via a solution package.  In my solution package.template.xml file, I added the entry below.  This deploys my resources.  I have a need to swap out the resource files and was hoping to have two features in the same pakage.  If I activate one feature, I would like to use one set of files, if I activate another, I would like to use another set of files.  Is this possible?  I would like to keep the names of the resource files identical though, so that I don't have to update legacy code.

<Solution xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
  <ApplicationResourceFiles>
    <App_GlobalResourceFile Location="Resources\Riblet.resx"/>
  </ApplicationResourceFiles>
</Solution>

Hi! I'ma afraid you can't do that - there is no way to deploy resource files using feature - resouces can be deployed only at solution (package) scope, not paticular feature.
If you want to override resource file on feature activation, you can write custom code for that in feature event receiver.
