I've just tried out jenkins yesterday and found that this particular
feature does not work in current versions of the git plugin anymore. Or
at least I couldn't find out how to make it work again (it works just
fine on our production hudson install, that is quite a bit older
though). See

And even if it works I find the way it works a bit cumbersome since each
branch triggers a new build-job and you cannot easily see at a glance
which build job relates to which branch.

So as Alex I'd do option 2 as long as the number of branches per project
stays at 2 or 3 at most.
