Straying a bit off-topic, I would love to test the bleeding-edge
pre-releases, but not at the expense of messing up my current working
environment (Xfce 4.6.1 on Xubuntu 10.04). I already bugged the list
once with this [1] (with no replies), but I might as well try again:
is it possible to install the pre-release alongside an (existing)
stable Xfce? I'd like to install it as if it were a different wm,
which would use a different config dir. Is anything similar possible?
Otherwise I'll probably end up going through a virtual machine.

Thank you
