This is exactly how svk works and I can tell you it is pretty sweet! It makes
it so easy to quickly do a bunch of vendor imports (tagging as you go) for a
project you'd like a little history on. Then smerge to a local branch and
you're golden. It's one of many things that svk does that svn needs to learn to do.

I know, sorry, this doesn't do your javahl people any good now, but I can
confirm that it is a viable mode of operation.
