If the changes are really one-way, they'd all be coming from the 
upstream repository.  If you make changes in 2 places, that's a 
distributed system - even if your copy is never pushed back upstream.

The svn way is to get write access to a branch in the one-and-only 
repository if you also want to make changes that are tracked.  Or 
reproduce the upstream commits in your copy letting the revision numbers 
(and any external tracking references) get out of sync.
