How can I have two versions of the same app listed in Launchpad?
For example, I have both Processing 1.5 and Processing 2.0 installed. Only one shows up at once - is it possible to have both?

Yes is possible to have two or more versions from the same application.
In order to work, you should rename your apps on Applications folder:
The main issue with this, is that usually both apps will share configuration files, and sometimes will be a problem.
Simply add the version numbers to the Applications' names in the Applications folder. You can do this by clicking the Application icon, then clicking the title underneath. I have three copies of Xcode in Launchpad like this.
You can rename them in the Applications folder. I guess both appear there as "Processing", give different names to them.
