Not together, no. They're not synchronized. The VASSAL trunk is ahead
of the VASL trunk.

No. There are likely to be many branches which don't work.

I think you're misunderstanding what the branches are. For VASSAL, each
branch started as a copy of the trunk at some point in the past. They're
not meant to work together---each one is a complete copy of VASSAL.

The VASL trunk should compile aginst the VASSAL 3.1 branch.
