Sorry if that came off the wrong way, it wasn't meant to be a flame to 
Gentoo (it'd be kind of awkward if it was, seeing how I'm actually running 
Gentoo at home...).  The reason I brought up Gentoo and its slots is 
because Purslow alluded to being a Gentoo user, and seemed to be implying 
that it was the Xfce dev team's job to make the side by side installation 

Besides which, if he's running Gentoo then an easy solution is just to 
build binary packages for both 4.0 and 4.2 and then switching back to 4.0 
w/o having to recompile if 4.2 blows up.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.
