Sounds like you just need to use git for more than just syncing.  Start
a new branch and drop your changes in, or cherrypick that delta from
upstream, or... whatever.  Merge master back in when it's stable for
you.  Lather, rinse, repeat as necessary...

The phenomenon of financial excess associated with
promising novel technologies is a recurring feature
of the last two centuries.  -- Andrew Odlyzko
