I prefer to merge with the trunk, unless you object.  Since the bidi
code is not run unless the user turns on a variable, I don't see any
reasons for a separate branch.  A separate branch complicates
logistics (for me, at least) and increases chances of a mistaken
commit.  It also exposes the modified code to fewer users.

As for reasons for not merging VSN, they will delay a separate branch
as well, since they are unrelated to the stability of the code.
