I'm not sure it does (yet), except in that it versions directories,
but I don't think that exactly solves what you're talking about.

There have been various proposals for a Subversion module system,
along the lines of "union directories", or other indirection-based
systems that allow rule-based groupings. That would probably solve
the problem described above, but it will not be in 1.0.

On the other hand, Subversion will support symlinks / shortcuts, which
should alleviate the problem...
