It's only for testing / evaluation purposes.  I don't want to have
people just install pacman3 if there are bugs in it.  I want them to
be able to install pacman3, mess with it, find a bug, then use pacman2
to continue what they're doing.  The side-by-side installation will
only be for a small period of time while we do some testing.
