I've been using symlinks to merge multiple repositories into a single tree for
my perl modules.

Take a look at

trunk/data/notes/system_scheme.txt explains (somewhat) what the scheme is
trunk/data/scripts/hop_to_links would do the linking for you (be careful

I've also started using it for my ~/.bin/ directory as well, since I can keep
everything in /usr/local/svn_hop/ and maintain code in my ~/.bin/ directory
across multiple systems (with multiple usernames.)

I've been considering doing this with my /etc/ files (trouble with the rc?.d
directories though?)

The namesake perl module Module::Subversion::Juggle may never exist, but feel
free to poke around at the bleeding edge scripts.
