I was encountering weird selection issues when I did that - ie. the cycle
chooser was not sure whether to list 21.50, 22.1, or both. Maybe part of
that is because both versions are marked experimental, and setup.exe's
experimental version handling has not always been the smartest in the past.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
