Other Ways to Debug Customizations?

description

As I posted at http://www.codeplex.com/servicefactory/Thread/View.aspx?ThreadId=32275, we are unable to use the experimental hive in VS2008 SP1 Beta 1.
 
We have also been unable to stop customizing. :-)
 
Right now, it's a major, slow, pain to get code working. Anything we can fix in unit tests gets fixed there, but, for instance, anything that invovles the UI or VS interaction we have to just try out, then try to interpret stack traces with no line numbers. I've added my own TraceListener, and that helps, but reminds me of times I thought long past.
 
Are there any other techniques for debugging without the Experimental Hive? We really need to know this, especially if this bug does not get fixed in the RTM of SP1.

BTW, this is causing development to take three to four times as long, reducing the value of the SF accordingly.
