The bit I left out where it can get painful is when the patch call to go
back to the first task fails due to changes picked up in the "svn
update" before working on the second task.

Even if the basic flow isn't any simpler (suspend original task, start
new task, finish new task, go back to original task), a bit of
assistance with that last step (when necessary) wouldn't go astray at all :)

Cheers,
Nick.
