If you are going to use a Dutch buckle to have your webbing and whoopies separate, I think it's better to have the whoopie hook on the fixed eye of the sling and put the adjustable loop over the Dutch buckle. I like doing the adjustments close to the hammock.
I just checked my Dutch buckles and the slots are big enough for the looped end to go through. It took a bit more work but it fits.
