No, it's not possible using existing svn binaries and tools, nor will
scripting help. When I said that the "foundation is laid", I merely
meant that the *APIs* already exist which could allow the things you
describe to happen. But you'd have to write your own custom clients
and tools to make use of such APIs.

That said, there's no need to undertake such a huge project. You can
accomplish the same effect just using branches. Have each user
commit changes to a private branch, and then have others review and
comment on it in the branch. (Anybody can 'svn switch' their working
copy to any branch, back and forth.) When everything is all approved,
then merge the branch to /trunk.
