I confirm that the can install alongside on DEB systems,
except for the application panels. One reason may be that they use the same
./config/libreoffice/4 folders.

I have, and all installed on two systems an Ubuntu
12.04 desktop and a Linux-Mint-Mate 13. I used the sudo dpkg -i *.deb

I can run all three versions, but only one at a time. The application panels
refer to the 4.0 version. These replaced the 3.6 panels when I added the 4.0
version. The 4.0 panels are still there when I added 4.1  as they were not
updated when installing 4.1, So I assume you would need to uninstall 4.0

I manually created a soffice and swriter startup panels for 3.6 and 4.1 as
the applications are held in separate  /opt folders as libreoffice3.6,
libreoffice4.0 and libreoffice4.1. However 4.0 and 4.1 both use the same
./config/libreoffice/4 folder, just as version 3.6 uses the /3 configuration
folder. The earlier /beta version used ./config/libreofficedev/4 which did
allow 4.0 and 4.1 to use different settings. 

I hope this helps a little bit.. Peter
