The above is what *I* _use_ to set up a repo directly "connected" to 
the master repo, in particular one for Axiom.

| The svk help intro page suggests a procedure like:
|     svk mirror
|       First, you'll need to mirror a remote repository. This sets up a
|       local copy of that repository for you to branch from, merge to and
|       otherwise poke at. The local path is sometimes called a "depot path."
|           # This command sets up the mirror directory for your local
|           # mirrors of remote repositories
|           svk mkdir //mirror

This creates a local branch in your default depot, so it effectively
is "deconnected" from the Axiom repo.  Is that what you want?
