Peter, the short answer is, "No." And I'm sure there are no shortage of
opinions about what you're trying to do from a methodology perspective, but
you'll need to seek them via the users_at_subversion.tigris.org list. This
list is about "the development of Subversion", not "how to do development
using Subversion". Thanks!
