Well, you could use something like 'config-manager' to handle this.

Then 'myproject' becomes a container project, and the subdirectories can
be whatever projects you would like.

This also allows you to handle the case where 'upstream1' is a CVS tree,
and 'upstream2' is a SVN, while mysrc is in bzr, etc.

That said, there seems to be a bug in the current Dapper for config
manager, because when I try to run it, I get an import error.
