i don't understand at all why "site" contains "trunk", does anybody
really want to branch it?

perhaps a patch tracking tool like "quilt" would be appropriate?

it allows to have not just a single big patch but multiple patches, each
one containing one "logical change".

then the patches and quilt metadata can be put into SVN.

(i have been using a versioned HG Mercurial Queue against the OOo repo,
which is quite similar in approach...)
