[Zope] Testing out new versions of XXX (in this case, WorldPilot)

What is the best way to test out new versions of Products without
breaking an existing setup?  Should I simply "version" the current
working version, then install new stuff to test, etc, or is there any
easy way to have products "ORIGINAL" and "ORIGINAL-2" (which is what
I'd prefer, for stability comparisons)

(in this case, I'm curious about the palm-syncing features of WP
1.1alpha for our home server, but can't afford to break our current
WWW-based email access...?)

Or should I just copy Data.fs and manually revert in case of accident?

Advice appreciated!
