I realize this might not exactly answer your question on parallel 
versions, but one simple way (depending on what you consider simple) is 
to run these bleeding edge versions on a virtual installation of 
Xubuntu. This might sound like overkill but at least it won't screw up 
your host OS. You also get the added benefit of an uncustomised testing 
environment for your translations. Check out virtualbox in the 
repositories if you are not familiar with virtualization.
