I think I got the message. So this is the appropriate time to create a
branch. My current base become trunk and perhaps tag it as V1; make a V2
branch of this; make my working copy point to the new branch, apply the
vendor's upgrade, then -- when I'm ready, merge the branch into the trunk?
Is that the jist of it?

Use a repository structure like this?
