If this is true, then it seems just having a pristine "checkout" branch locally would give
you a fixed set of files.

You can do your merge from that pristine checkout branch rather than from the launchpad copy.

I spent some time looking for a solution the EOL problem awhile back.  But for some reason
I found that BZR simply works, and the issue has become moot.

So don't let is cost you any sleep, just always have that pristine checkout branch. 
Besides we might need it someday if launchpad ever gets hacked.  We would need a number of
copies elsewhere > 0.

Trick mentioned above.
