That's innovative. I'm starting to get the idea that subversion is
completely flexible, and that many locations like trunk and vendor are
convenience conventions, rather than absolute procedures that must be
followed in rote order.

What will I do when I want to bring later versions of acme from the
vendor/0.6 -> /vendor/current branch -> /trunk/(contents of 0.6). Does it
become a merge in subsequent commands?

I have about fifteen historical vendor tarballs I'm going to import before
making any customizations of the latest version in my working copy
checkout of the trunk.
