Take the approach that Bazaar does with shared repositories. Users
either create a standalone working-copy that houses its own bases or
create a local repo which houses the bases for any enclosed
working-copies.

EG 4 related working copies all arbitrarily nested under an enclosing
local-bases repository.

c:/wc/myproject/
    .svn/bases/...
    mainlines/
        kea/
            .svn/...
        kiwi/...
            .svn/...
    branches/
       bug-12345/
            .svn/...
      story-23456/
            .svn/...

You can still use reference-counting to assist in purging bases but
also offer a command to do a scavenger hunt for bases not really
referenced - such bases could be scheduled for deletion in a delayed
FIFO queue.

Not as convenient as being able to separate it off onto separate
spindles but still a handy layout.
