I don't think so, since each repository can only be on one branch at  
a time. The way to do this would be to create 2 local repos that  
track the upstream and designate one as being primarily samba3 and  
one as being primarily samba4. Since they all share the same history,  
I think you should be able to merge back and forth between them all  
without any trouble.
