Well, that's essentially what I used too.  Its a bit sucky.

Interesting - so project-upstream is using svn and local is using pure 
bzr?  That's pretty

That's very interesting.  Or at least it would be if bzr-svn in 1.15.1 
works with svn 1.6
workspaces. Looks like there is pending goodness in bzr-svn coming 
though, so I guess
this will be fixed.
