sub-versions?

Hi All,

   Apologies if this is the incorrect forum for my question.

I recognise that Subversions is meant primarily as a replacement for CVS, so
the answer to my question may be "No, because CVS doersn't either.", but here
goes:

Is there any automated way within Subversions, or any plans in the future, for
supporting nested repositories?

What I want to do is:

Checkout a project to my notebook. Work whilst disconnected from the network,
with the ability to checkin my changes to a local repository on my notebook.
Reconnect to the network, and checkin my most recent local version to the
central repository.

This feature would also allow a development team to have a private
sub-repository that they coordinate with, and from which they then checkin
stable versions to a parent repository. Such nesting could be arbitrarily
deep.

This is not impossible with CVS, but difficult and error-prone. Because of the
way CVS associates checked-out files with the repository, the associations
are not easily modified. Currently, I use import/export manually to move
changes from one repository to another, but this is error-prone. It would be
much easier and more reliable if I could checkout from one repository, and
then checkin to another repository somehow, or alternatively, update one
repository directly from another.

All thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
Nik.
