This is the sort of thing that the "trunk/tags/branches" idea is
about. You haven't shown complete URLs, so maybe you already have
those directories up in "...", but from the sound of your questions,
I think you should organize your repository something like this:


With this arrangement, your users get
http://host/svn/3rdparty/ACE/trunk, and not "someversion" of it.
