Interesting. But I don't use SVK (I tried to, and find it too slow and too
badly documented) and I don't see a way to use SVK just to manage vendor
branches.

Moreover, it doesn't hide from the user the full paths of the vendor
imports, nor it does allow to downgrade a copied vendor package (which is
also the reason why I don't plan on using svnmerge.py, which provides the
equivalent of "svk smerge").
