We'll, it's not trivial (depending on your definition of trivial) but
you can (mis)-use mock to create a chroot environment which is easily
nuked when you're done with it. You have to use Xnest to create an X
session that you can export to your X session but it does work.
I've used this for testing packages I'm troubleshooting on other
releases of Fedora than what I'm running.
