Koen, thanks for that email. What you say is exactly true, and we  
should in fact decide if we want to create a separate project for  
Alex's code, this is the real bottom line. And I was arguing we  
should, but the option of having it available as a download is good  
enough for me.

To answer your question: yes, you would need to check out 2 separate  
projects when working on the trunk and on a branch (btw, there is  
only one trunk, not several "trunks", but several branches; think of  
a tree ;-) ...). And it is actually not very hard to manage. You just  
want to make sure you know which version of the project is open when  
you work on the code! Xcode can get a bit confused with the builds,  
so you may have to do some clean-up.
But this probably does not have to happen here anyway.
