Thinking more long-term, perhaps? Some 2.4's features can be used with 2.3
with appropriate compat modules and so on.
I suspect that one of the main reasons that people have multiple versions
installed for development, though, is to ensure that the code works across
versions, because it's not known what version it will be deployed with.
That's certainly what I do.
