Apart from the suggested svn:external method, you might want to take a look at
the svn_load_dirs script. That script is aimed as people who want to follow
an upstream release tree while maintaining local changes. However, the more
local changes you maintain that never go upstream, the less convenient this
method becomes.

In any case, I would also consider asking this again on the Subversion
mailinglist, as this request is not specific to TSVN. You might get further
insight there.
