To me, this use-case seems to differ from what you describe in the paragraph
above. So maybe I don't really understand what you are trying to accomplish.
Anyway: for example the Tomcat source consists of "stand-alone-like" modules
which reside in seperate directories. To be able to pull all those
directories with a single command, Subversion's "svn:externals" property is
used on an (otherwise empty) directory:
Look at the properties of this
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tomcat/current/tc5.5.x
repository to see what I mean.

svn:externals is described here:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.externals.html

Maybe that's what you're looking for.
