Your file system can obviously do whatever you want. Those 3 directories
could even be 3 different repositories from 3 different servers. When you
are working in Subclipse, your complete project has to be a valid working
copy. The rules of a working copy are governed by Subversion. If you
want to be able to pull in source from multiple locations, the way that
Subversion handles this is with the svn:externals property.
