That would work.

That would work too.

"Remove?" If you mean 'rm -rf', then they'd only come back when the
user runs 'svn up'.

A fourth way is to use mod_authz_svn: deny certain users (or groups of
users) the ability to "read" the undesired subdirs. When they do a
checkout, their working copy will have an entry for the subdirs (in
.svn/entries), but no actual working directories. The dirs will be
listed as 'absent' in the entries file.
