I think what you really want is to maintain the systems as branches
in the first place, but I haven't come up with a way to import
things in a way that gives them a common parent and maintains the
common base versions on a trunk with only the differences in the
branches. Has anyone worked out a scheme for this where the
(slightly) differing versions already exist as a starting point,
then ongoing changes are made in one of the branches and may or
may not be propagated to the trunk and other branches? I'd love
to be able to 'svn diff' all or any configs from one machine to
another as well as different timeframes.
