"Big" things? Or when you're unsure if what you're doing will work,
etc. In those cases, if you need to go off and do some temporary
development for a while, use /tmp or /tmp-public (SVN is a little
different than git). When you're ready to bring it back to the trunk,
if it's a Big Change, ask others to test it, etc.
