I like Combinator, and would like to use it to hack on Twisted, in addition
to hacking with it. mkbranch seems to need write privileges to the SVN
repo, though. Is there a way around this, or do I just create a fake local
branch by copying the trunk in my local copy?

Actually, it would be better to have the branch up there in the repo, so
that the ongoing work is visible. Is there a way to get write access to the
branches and sandbox trees of the Twisted repo, without having it in the
tags and trunk trees?
