Sure, just get one stow environment per shell, and set PYTHONPATH
differently for each one (for example by using an alias
pythonfoo='PYTHONPATH=foo python'). The great advantage of stow is its
simplicity. If you screw up something, you just remove the directory,
there is no side effect at all. In a way, stow fixes one of the things
which I really hate with unix, the FHS.
