On the trunk is my suggestion.

I'd just make yours on the trunk. But make a slink_cd branch first so that
any maintenance changes for slink can go in there.

Cool, good idea.

I wouldn't worry too much about slink_cd now. Concentrate on potato for
the trunk.

I have some changes to slink_cd that I'm halfway through making which may
help. But at the current rate of progress it'll be a couple of weeks
before I can get them done.
