We can setup such a branch, unless you reconsider and try bazaar first. There wouldn't be any pushing it back upstream, though - you would still need to go through the tracker for all changes. The only advantage I can see is that it simplifies repeated merging of the trunk into your branch.
Although it doesn't help Victor specifically, anyone with svn commit privileges also has permission to push Bazaar (and I think Mercurial) branches back to code.python.org. Not the official branches, but a little sandbox for yourself. I don't know if anybody's actually doing this.
I have been using bzr for all of my importlib work. It's worked out well sans the problem that SOMEONE <cough>Barry</cough> has not upgraded the bzr installation to support the newest wire protocol.
