Update OpenCV version in ROS

I checked my OpenCV version discovering that is 2.4.8. I want to update it to 2.4.13 (at least 2.4.9) but I don't want to stop to use it in ROS Indigo too.

Since OpenCV is not a system dependencies anymore for Indigo, can I simply remove the old version of OpenCV and install a new one without "break" ROS Indigo?

Anyone knows if other actions are required?

You can locally upgrade any package. But you will potentially have to rebuild all packages built against that package if the ABI has changed. Otherwise it will be fine.

Related: #q289264. I've also described how to update a system dependency and then rebuild packages that depend on it.
