It's possible to run lilypond without installing it (see section 2.2 of the
Contributors' Guide for instructions on running lilypond from the source

And if you have the source tree in a git repository, then it's trivial to
make branches, and checkout the appropriate branch.  That way you don't have
to worry about overwrites (and if you do have overwrite problems, then you
just reset the head).

It's no problem at all, if you do it that way.
