Subversion 1.5 supports merging that appears to be equivalent to bzr
merging (within SVN's somewhat different concept of branching), and
should do the job nicely.
It does not appear to require all users to have version 1.5, but all the
users doing merges must have it. (I use version 1.6.12, at present).

As Mark said, creating the branch is not a problem as long as all our
patches are free of legal issues.
