I don't think doing a branch of the entire tree is a good idea (well
maybe...). I was thinking more along the lines of subtree merges into a local
overlay, or perhaps submodules. To do that currently (I think) would require
taking the rsync tree and putting that into a repo, and trying to keep it
synchronized. Plus in the process you lose all correspondance with upstream
commits so that logs and diffs become meaningless.
