Why is it painful?

I do branches all the time in Subversion, and don't see problems. We
periodically update the branch from trunk, and when the work is done,
merge the branch back onto trunk. These are straight-forward
operations, so I don't understand where your pain point is.

If you could explain a bit, then that would be helpful.
