A checkout _is_, idiomatically, exactly what you want for that case.
You want to make changes to the upstream branch. Leaving hooking into
bzrlib with a script and related magic to one side, you do that by
making changes in a working tree for the branch and committing them.
Checkout gives you a working tree for the branch.
