360 flash options

I have a K10D and wanted to get a dedicated flash for it. I was wondering, since the new firmware allows for wireless use, could I purchase a 360 instead of a 540 and if I need to "swivel" the lens, just take it out of the hot shoe and use it wirelessly?

What's the deal with the "optical" trigerring of the wireless function (ie, can I not aim it AWAY from the K10 in fear that the optical wireless won't work)?

Yes. The 540 has a higher guide number, and the head swivels. Most of the other functions are the same.
