The sandbox seems a fine place for this.  It's what I'm currently doing
with the email package.  Two of the three versions are actually
external'd from Python branches and contain extra stuff to enable
standalone releases.  The third is being developed first in the sandbox,
but will soon be merged back into the trunk and then managed in the same
way as the other two.  Except for the usual headaches of managing three
versions of a package, it's working out quite well.
