Repository Merging

Hi guys.
I'm new to Alfresco and I'm very impressed with what I've seen to date, excellent work!!!

My question:
I'm currently evaluating many CMS' and one requirement I have is a means for supporting both a "Production CMS" and "Project(s) CMS". 

- The "Production CMS" environment will support the daily/hourly movement of files to the production servers.
- The "Project CMS" environment(s) will support projects that intend on deploying to Production run-time in the future (think holiday campaigns as an example of project).  From my perspective these environments could start as branches of production (created at a particular point in time), these branches would be coded on then merged back into "Production CMS" when there ready.

I see Alfresco being able to manage the "Production CMS Environment" through the use of "User Sandboxes" workflowing to "Staging Sandbox" then files being pushed to our Production run-time with FSR.  However, I don't see how Alfresco can meet our other requirement of a "Project CMS environment"  I haven't seen a mechanism for merging or branching repositories.

How are others in the wild accomplishing this task?

Thanks everyone,
