FWIW, I don't see anything that the changelist feature gains you when
SVK is so much more natural to use:

   $ cpan install SVK
   $ svk mirror http://remote/repo/project //mirrors/project
   $ svk sync //mirrors/project
   $ svk cp -p //mirrors/project/trunk //local/project/trunk
   $ svk co //local/project/trunk project
   $ yada yada yada

You can keep multiple local branches and use a single working copy, so
you are only paying the additional storage cost twice (modulo how much
of the remote repository you want to mirror, which can be all or just
part of the original history).

YMMV
