Migrating from CVS - a couple of questions

Hi,
I'm thinking of migrating from CVS (main reason is for file renaming
support), but I have a couple of questions I'd like to get some answers to
before making the big move!

Question 1:
CVS has a concept called "ampersand modules" whereby a module can refer to
other modules by including '&othermodule' in it's definition in the modules
file.

Let's say the CVS repo contains two modules (mod1, mod2). I can create an
ampersand (virtual) module by putting the following line is a configuration
file on the CVS server.

ampermod &mod1 &mod2

Now I can checkout 'ampermod' (cvs co ampermod) and I will see the
following:
ampermod/mod1/...
ampermod/mod2/...

Is there a similar concept in subversion?

Question 2:
With CVS it is possible to have CVS run programs to process files when they
are committed. Typically this is used to run code formatters
(prettyprinters). Is it possible to do this with subversion?

Thanks,
ct
