Step 1.  I've made the decision to purchase a pair of VFF's.  I run trails alot and am a forefoot runner already.  I use the lightest minimalist shoes now and these seem to be a perfect match to my style.  Barefoot, but protected.
But the new Trek seems to be the best for me.  Is it a reality?  Will they be available in retail stores anytime soon or are they on the back burner?
I'm also in between a 41 and 42 (in the KSO).  I've only been able to try on the 41.  Feel great and they are what helped me decide I needed some.  But my first two toes are right up against the end.  Will I have troubles on long runs if my feet swell?  Will i regret such a tight fit?  My foot(s) measures 10-3/8"

I think it's ok that your toes go up against the edge so long as they aren't being squished at all.  I do think you might want to try 42 just to see how it feels -- is is too big for your toes?  Just right?

I think you can trail run in regular KSOs fine (I have and it is fine).  Treks are unknown at this point -- relatively untested (though Barefoot Ted loves his).  I think the key problem with getting them is going to be availability.  I think they are just gonna scream off the shelves.
