There is already precedence that subversion doesn't do that, but gives you the
means to do so yourself. Just as things like 'projectname' and 'branch' are
orthogonal concepts, your 'context' is just one more such context. As such,
you can achieve the functionality using what Subversion already provides.

As already mentioned, svn:externals will help you, although, if it is just
configfiles, I personally would rather add a commandline switch to my
application that makes it use a different configuration file. Different
use-cases require different measures though, so YMMV.
