As I don't really know the implications of these changes, eg. importing
the .svn in one repository, the .svn.vendor in the other, with corresponding
problems when updating one to an older version (trashing the information of
the other repository), etc....

I'd suggest using svk - it should do what you need, ie. mirror a remote
repository, ease working on local branches, and supports generating patches.

That seems *much* better than having one working copy disturbing another,
laying beneath/over the other ...

Phil
