Subversion is a folder based version control system, and as such you can
have difficulty when you want to mix folder content from different origins.

A possible workaround is to create a separate folder for each vendor and use
some automated script that copies files to the shared location. The shared
location is NOT under version control, just the different folders for each
vendor. This should be possible with client side hooks.

Of course you will have to take care of duplicate file names between the
vendors, but that is a risk in the current set up as well.
