copying/merging a repository into a directory...

hi...

in reviewing the docs/google... i can see how to take a dir from a
repository, and add it to it's own repository...

i need to know how to reverse the process. ie, if i have a repository that
consists of files, how would i go about adding it to an existing repository,
such that the files are under the correct dir within the existing
repository..

here's what i'm envisioning:

repo_parent (contains the masterlist/repository)
 /tags
 /branches
 /trunk
   /foo1
     -cat.txt
     -dog.txt
   /foo2

repo_child (the child repository)
 (copied from the parent repository)
   -cat.txt
   -dog.txt

i'd like to be able to copy the '/foo1' from the parent repository
'repo_parent' to the child repository (in this case 'repo_child'), allow the
appropriate users to make the changes to the files within the child
repository, and then copy/move the files from the child repository back to
the '/foo' location within the parent repository...

if i can effectively copy/move the files from the child repository back to
the correct dir within the parent while maintaining the
history/comments/etc.. then this will allow me to essentially restrict user
access to the files within the parent repository...

this approach simply requires that i maintain/update the user access within
each repository's 'svnserve.conf' file.

thanks for any thoughts/assistance/pointers/etc...
