I have not had a lot of experience with Subversion yet, but I was reading 
the manual section on "vendor branches", and they suggest to have both the 
original source (e.g. Python trunk) and patched source (PythonCE trunk for 
2.6) in the repository in separate directories. That way, to update our own 
source we first update our copy of the Python trunk source, and then use the 
Subversion merge command to automatically merge the changes into our branch. 
For example:

  /trunk <- (1) update to latest Python source
  /trunk <- (2) merge /python/trunk into here

If there are other source control tools that make it easier though, then go 
for it.
