In that case, I think you're stuck with the following model:

- In your repo, on the trunk, hack hack hack.

- Create a release for you client by copying to tag. (Or merge into
  client branch, or whatever is appropriate.)

- Export the tag.

- Import the export into client repo.

Of course, by doing this, not much is gained by them having their own
repo; you might as well give a tarball. Hmmm, I suppose them having a
repo might make it easier to preview changes, revert, etc.

Ahhh, the other approach might be SVK, which does support merging
between repositories. But all I know about SVK I read on the web:
