No, it is not. svnsync is for maintaining read-only mirrors, it has
no ability to do bidirectional syncing like what you're talking about.
 In order to replay commits like that you'd need to do a bunch of
locking to ensure that when a commit is going on in project A nothing
is being changed in project B, and currently there's no way to do
that. It might be possible to implement, but it's outside the scope
of what svnsync does right now.
