Hi Erlend,

I keep multiple Derby subversion clients on my local machine, one for 
each trunk issue I am working on, one for each branch that I work in, 
and one for each doc branch that I work in. I also maintain a tarball of 
the latest trunk snapshot. I use this tarball to quickly create new 
trunk clients when I want to start work on a new issue. Periodically I 
delete old clients.

Hope this helps,
