I don't understand what you're trying to do. What do you mean,
disjoint working copies? Which working copy is disjoint from which
other working copy?

When I want to update something in one of my projects that is a
vendor branch, I do this: Say I have a directory lib/foolib which
contains something that was originally copied from /vendor/foolib in
the repository:

svn co $REPO/project/trunk project-trunk
cd project-trunk
cd lib
svn cp $REPO/vendor/foolib/1.2.3 foolib

Now, when foolib 1.2.4 is released and I import it into my /vendor, I
can update my project like this:

cd project-trunk
cd lib
svn merge $REPO/vendor/foolib/{1.2.3,1.2.4}

There is only one working copy -- the working copy of my project.
