Even I myself am starting to familiari[sz]e myself with rewrite (I've been using trunk all along).

Since xqt! is putting A LOT OF EFFORT into the project to finally
merge trunk with rewrite (at least the bot scripts), you should USE

The only reasons not to do so are:
- - you started using trunk already some while ago
- - you need a function implemented in trunk already and have no time to
port it to rewrite by yourself (and nobody else is willing to do so)

Greetings and have fun with rewrite!
