Is there a way to test new skins / templates / themes on a live store?

I have this client with a live store to whom I want to show suggested design changes to, but I feel it’s not enough to send modified screen dumps in an email to the client.
Is there a way to make new skins or templates or even a whole package, in Magento and let the client test it on their live store without interfering with “normal” customers? So if I make a new skin and place it in “/skin/frontend/default/new_skin”, the client will get “/skin/frontend/default/new_skin” when browsing their store while everyone else will see “/skin/frontend/default/default”.

This would save me a lot of time!

Hello

I’m also interested in this. Maybe there is an option to set the theme which will be loaded by a parameter in the url ?

Thx
Martin
