i believe it's the other way around. check out the trunk, then switch
parts you are making 'dangerous' modifications on to the branch. you
could certainly do it the other way around, it's just that if you're
messing with one directory, this means you only need to switch that
directory, as opposed to having to switch everything other than that
directory. they should be functionally equivalent though.
