Hi Joe,

I'm using Xnest X server when I want to try new window manager, so I don't
have to logout/login back at all. It's usually in the separate package and
not a part of the default installation -- you may need to install it.

and then it's quite easy:

$ Xnest :1 & # or whatever the display number you like
$ your_new_wm -display :1
