If FSVS doesn't do what you want (or is too heavy-weight for your application),
you can also consider SVK:

        http://search.cpan.org/search?query=svk&mode=all

which is a Subversion client built in Perl. Among other features, a working
copy has no administrative directories; instead it uses a local SVN repo (which
can be a mirror of a remote repo) to keep the administrative information. This
SVK configuration directory can be located at an arbitrary path, which sounds
ideal for your application.

NOTE: SVK has a raft of pre-requisites, but between CPAN (or I recommend
CPANPLUS) and Module::Install, it isn't hard at all to install.
