I am running Kubuntu. I have had no problems switching between the 
official Ubuntu packages and svn using checkinstall. It's easy to switch 
back to the standard package if you want to.

The only problem is if you have additional frontends, as the svn version 
uses a different protocol, so you have to upgrade the frontends too.

There is a description on my wiki on how Ibuilt myth from svn on Kubuntu:
