That's one solution.

However, wc.db already has the ability to represent multiple related
trees (via op_depth), so another way would be to extend that into
storing not only the post-'svn patch' trees too, and then merging them
in the usual way. (which may require repository communication, or
storing the pre-patch tree locally too...)

Perhaps you'd be interested in contributing to the implementation of
this feature?
