Your description of "shadow" folders here isn't entirely accurate,
because _nothing_ happens "server side" in VSS, as there is no VSS server!

A very simple way to accomplish this would be to create a "post-commit"
hook script which does an "svn update" (or "svn export", if you don't
want the .svn maintenance directories) on the directory of your choice.
