Quilt sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out.

Personally I setup my own SVN with a trunk mirrored (manually) from the 
main Myth trunk. I then branch that trunk to my own dev branch and work 
on that.

When changes in myth come in, I check out the live revision that I last 
synced to and issue an svn merge to the latest revision. I then do an 
svn diff and put that in a file.

I then checkout my own trunk , patch it with the diff above and commit.

I can then merge my trunk to my branch and carry on.

It is a pain and it would be made so much easier if SVN supported 
cross-repository merges, but this is obviously rather complex.
