You don't need a branch until you are going to develop something. And there
is no reason to make an install of an old point release for new work when
bugs are fixed and available in 4.6.1.

One more thing, would it be an issue if I install mulitple

You can do that. Or install into different directories and source the GMXRC
from the version you wish to use. Since you'll have to source a GMXRC
anyway, you may as well do the latter and not have to write scripts/command
lines that specify the version on every command.
