Subject: mysqld_multi & different server versions

In my ongoing quest to get upgraded to 4.1.3 beta (yes the version I'm 
upgrading to keeps changing), i have been reading about mysqld_multi to 
manage multiple server instances on the same machine.

But, from what i've read, it appears that this is for running multiple 
instances of the same server version on one box. Same binary anyway. I

So am i correct in thinking that i wont be able to use mysqld_multi for 
running two different server versions? This shouldn't be a problem, I
think i'll need it. Just wanted to check if im missing something.
