I read somewhere about creating a subdirectory for every developer with
svn:externals pointing to what he needs.

For example (without full URLs!)

devs/dev1 [coder]
   svn:externals
     trunk/src

devs/dev2 [documentor]
   svn:externals
     trunk/src
     trunk/docs

devs/dev3 [working on a special branch]
   svn:externals
     branches/feature1

...

Every developer can also change the svn:externals for his directory to
other paths. But the externals won't get committed if you commit the WC
root AFAIK. The benefit is that one developer has to do only one
checkout to become everything he needs.

I hope you can understand what I'm trying to explain.
