Yes. Interchange can run multiple catalogs per interchange daemon. You
can probably restart individual catalogs by researching the bin/minivend
command line arguments a bit more
Yes, you can also easily run multiple interchange deamons per box. Just
install them to different directories (/usr/local/ic-4.6.3,
or /usr/local/ic-CVS-$DATE is how I do it). It doesn't hurt for them to
share a common catalog directory (such as /var/ic), but you probably don't
want two daemons accessing the same catalog at the same time :-)
In short, it's more of a sysadmin issue than it is a program issue, which
extols the value of Mike's quality programming. (Thanks, Mike).

You can do either, but I would make completely separate copies for the sake
