I have historically just run two different versions of Python and
wxPython when I needed as much.

On Windows, you would just install them to different folders.

On *nix, if you compile it yourself, in the sequence:
make install

you can use 'make altinstall' instead of 'make install', or even alter
the PREFIX variable in the Makefile between 'make' and 'make install'.
