Samaritan Pentateuch: Is it worth a look?

Is the Samaritan Pentateuch simply an edited Torah to justify a particular observance (as often rumored), or is there more to it? Does it have value as a manuscript for study? We'll talk about the infamous 10th/11th commandment, the early mention of future prophets, the Tabernacle description, and boiling a kid in its mother's milk.

[Aleksandr Sigalov:] Please see my Tri-linear Pentateuch that shows all three witnesses compared. 

Also, Samaritan Pentateuch is the best available proof that the text of the Torah had been extensively edited and can't be trusted due to intentional corruption. The best way to interpret all three witnesses is to use logic and comparative critical analysis of the text. DO NOT BLINDLY TRUST THE TEXT !!!
