If you're comfortable building from source, you should be able to do
./configure --prefix=/some/path to install someplace like /usr/local
or /opt/python-2.6.1 so that you don't overwrite anything, and then
you can call the new binary directly.

You might need to do something like "sudo apt-get build-dep python" to
pull in the build dependencies.
