This is possible with PERFORCE > is it with SVN (yet ;) ) ?

Here's a litte ascii schema

           --------------------------------- branch 2
           |
           |
 ------------------------------------------- branch 1
       - - -
       - - -
         a b c

Let's say that a, b and c are three different revisions
of my project on the main trunk.

After a, the project forks, to create branch 2.

Then, on branch 1, I make the revision B, which is a
real nightmare, I break a lot of code, etc... etc...
and soon after someone commits the revision C with bug
fixes, and lot of improvements, but carries the problems
introduced with B.

Is it possible to merge the changes of revision C with
branch 2, without merging the changes of revision B ?

This is possible with Perforce, and I don't know if it is
with SVN (I mean easily).

If it's not possible with SVN, this will be the killer
feature of Perforce over it. But if it is, (and you tell me),
you can be pretty sure that 280 developers will soon turn to SVN.

(plus it would look great in my internship report ;) )
