IMHO it is not a good idea to share the home between them,
because there a new program versions in edgy which will change most
proabaly the files at first start.

If you use then the dapper version again ... well this will lead surely
to problems.

Instead of sharing i would just plain copy the files over to the edgy
home. An other advantage you still have your dapper-profile in place,
like a backup.
If something went wrong you can use it again, just copy it over again.
