I think in most cases like this developers will use GARNOME or jhbuild
to get CVS versions of stuff running, installing things in their home
directory. Generally having potentially badly broken stuff installed
system-wide is not a great idea, and if you install things in your
homedir you can pretty easily revert to the stable stuff that comes
with your distro (eg. by making $PATH not include $HOME/bin).

Hope that helps,
