You might also want to look at contrib/client-side/svn_load_dirs.pl in
Subversion. I believe it gives you some of the functionality of CVS's
vendor branches, which is more or less what you want here. You would
maintain your own Subversion repository containing a copy of their
sources, and use svn_load_dirs.pl to sync it against their stuff.

I've never used it myself, by the way, so this is all hearsay.

Good luck,
