Thanks for your help stefan!

I proceeded as follows:
Before loading a release into the vendor branch with svn_load_dirs.pl, I
moved the contents of the upload dir into the parent directory and
deleted the upload dir. This means that the vendor branch has the same
layout as we have in the trunk, making merging changes between vendor
releases into the trunk much simpler. Just need to remember to do that
for all future vendor releases now!

Thanks once again, I'm now feeling more comfortable with vendor
