Vendor branch help

From: Epsilon <epsilon_at_yahoo.com>

I'm having difficultly understanding vendor branches as described in
Chapter 7 (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch07s04.html). I have
two questions:

1. What's the best way to "replace the current version with the new
libcomplex 1.1 source code"? Do we simply "blow away" the old version
with "svn del" and import the new?

2. After executing the command:

$ svn copy http://svn.example.com/repos/vendor/libcomplex/1.0 \
            http://svn.example.com/repos/calc/libcomplex \
            -m 'bringing libcomplex-1.0 into the main branch'

We'll have a repository that looks like this:



If so, this seems "wrong" to me because it (the main branch) won't be
based on version 1.0 forever so it shouldn't have "1.0" in it's URL.

Perhaps I'm not understanding the full life cycle of vendor branches.
think an additional iteration of importing a vendor drop in Chapter 7
would go a long way to clarify the process.

Thanks in advance.
