The way I understand the documentation, that would only work in a trivial
case; as you mentioned, files that were in Vendor Software 1.0 but not in
Vendor Software 1.1 would not be picked up.

The documentation on Vendor Branches at
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07s04.html> mentions a script called
"svn_load_dirs.pl" that can be used.

Here's a brief overview of the process I use, based on
what I understand the book to say. Actually, a transcript
might be more illustrative:

tar xzf libcomplex-1.0.tar.gz -C $TMPDIR
svn import $R/vendor/libcomplex/current $TMPDIR/libcomplex-1.0
svn copy $R/vendor/libcomplex/current $R/vendor/libcomplex/1.0
rm -r $TMPDIR/libcomplex-1.0
sleep $SECONDS_UNTIL_NEW_VERSION_IS_RELEASED
tar xzf libcomplex-1.1.tar.gz -C $TMPDIR
svn_load_dirs.pl -t 1.1 $R/vendor/libcomplex current /tmp/libcomplex-1.1
rm -r $TMPDIR/libcomplex-1.1
