Well, that would be good to have, unfortunately xpra is in python which
makes it many orders of magnitude harder to allow side-by-side
installation. And that would have to be done for source installs, RPMs,
DEBs, etc..
On top of that, the installation would be so different from what we have
now that it is likely to create more bugs than it is worth.
I really don't have the time to dedicate to this task, sorry.
