But what if someone wanted to make some relatively intrusive changes to
a provider against two different branches of FDO (say, 3.4 and 3.3) to
fix a particular defect or performance problem?

I think that the only item the current setup would not support is #2,
the issue of isolation. But since we are provider driven, is there a
chance we will have multiple people sandboxing the same provider? I like
the idea of a common sandbox as it allows you to immediately determine
if the changes others are working on will work with the changes you are
making without breaking the build in the trunk, etc. Sandbox changes to
FDO itself can immediately be seen and their worth be assessed by all
provider developers. 

However, this is my philosophy. If you really need a sandbox for your
own development, we could set something up.
