Consider using shared repositories with a fresh branch for each merge:


Basically, you do something like this:

  bzr init-repo zope.applicationcontrol --format=rich-root-pack #last I
checked, bzr-svn liked this format, you can also --format=svn
  cd zope.applicationcontrol
  bzr branch lp:zope.applicationcontrol #bzr looks for  .bzr in ., which
tells it there is a shared storage

What this does is allow you to have multiple local branches of something
without wasting full repo storage on each one.  This func goes back at least
to BitKeeper and may be able to use hardlinks to further reduce storage
redundancy, though that can lead to pain, suffering, anger, etc..
