I was thinking about e.g. if I want to add some files to documentation, 
but want updates of documentation of the trunk to automatically make my 
branch updated.

Ok, if this is the only reason, and I am already used to this practice, 
how would I get into this practice in the first place?

Well, I was also thinking about whether it'd be a good idea to make 
changes to makefiles of /trunk/externals but only in my branch. In the end 
I think that it wouldn't be so good an idea, exactly because the Makefile 
only makes sense in a larger context... updates to the trunk would 
eventually cause trouble to the branch.
