I'd prefer to use db_query_slave(). It makes it simple to direct safe
queries to the slave with a minimum of changes. I'd rather wait and
make all the D7 database changes at once rather than trying to
anticipate what we'll want to do. It's good to have an eye on where
you'd like to be so you don't paint yourself into a corner but there's
a lot than can happen between now and then.
