I don't think "svn copy" works across repositories.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "hard copy"; the term "hard copy"
usually refers to a printout on paper.

You could "svnadmin dump" rep1 and "svndumpfilter" just the part you
wanted and "svnadmin load" it into rep2. rep2 would then be an
independent copy of what was in that directory in rep1 and their
histories would diverge from there.

Or did you mean something like a Unix hard link? There's no such
thing in Subversion, but perhaps externals would help you. You can
read about them here:
