1. Mirror Boost:
svk mirror <boost url> //mirrors/boost
svk sync -s HEAD
2. Create a directory for your patched version
svk cp //mirrors/boost //work/boost
3. Hack on //work/boost as necessary
4. When you want to grab newer release/trunk state of boost, do:
svk sync //mirrors/boost
svk smerge //mirrors/boost //work/bost
