switching between window managers

is there a quick way of switching window managers while you logged in, I know the beryl-manager could change you between loads of window managers, but i was just wondering if you could do it without beryl, because i want to start fluxbox and close kwin but i dont know how without logging out and back in again.

i know fvwm, icewm, blackbox, fluxbox & WindowMaker use the restart command to load other window mangers, you could give that a try...
