I do it also, but another way, since I want to be able to switch
globally: I put in my path something like ~/tlsel/bin and make it point
the distro I want to use. This way, changing the symlink changes the TeX
distribution in use for all may opened shells (and gui programs) so that
I do not need to worry about shells with different path.

Of course I can also adjust the path locally if I want a different
distro for just one shell.
