[mythtv] Safe/Easy way to tweak plugins?

I wanted to make some minor changes to mythvideo (trunk), but also wanted
to stick as much as possible with trunk packages from mythbuntu, so was
wondering if this was a safe(ish) alternative to building everything from
source. Basically I install libmyth-dev and only build the plugin I'm
working with. And of course "safe" excludes whatever breakage I've added to
the plugin, but I'm assuming the api's will be compatible.

sudo apt-get install libmyth-dev
svn co -r <package rev> http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins
cd mythplugins
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-all --enable-opengl --enable-mythvideo
// my patches to mythvideo
sudo make install
