Yes, but it's very complex, so we haven't done it yet, sorry. It's
not scheduled for 1.1 or 1.2. It's likely related to merge-tracking
in general, and will happen someday, but only when some developers sit
down and decide to make it happen. It needs a long and careful design

Just a general note (not addressed to you):

Many, many people have posted various distributed Subversion solutions
to this list. At this point, we could easily write a "Why your
distributed Subversion solution won't work" document (along the lines
of the classic http://www.craphound.com/spamsolutions.txt).

The most common flaw in these solutions is that they fail to handle
merging of conflicting changes. So while I don't want to discourage
creative thinking about distributed Subversion, please folks, do try
to handle the basic use cases :-).
