You can use path entries like $(MYBASEDIR)\x\y\z and then define
MYBASEDIR=c:\whatever\ in the Environment in Project Properties.
Then you can just Save Project As to make the project for the new
branch and change just MYBASEDIR in the project file.

If the project file is in SVN, use the Shared Project Type in the
Project Properties' Options tab and check in only the .wpr file.
The Environment and Python Path (among other things that vary from
machine to machine or checkout to checkout) will be stored in
the *.wpu file.

Please let me know if this does not help.
