As you said it yourself, subversion itself is not designed for a
distributed environment (unless you need readonly slaves then you can
use the new sync tool provided by 1.4) so you should clearly state that
to your partner and propose either to use a thridparty tool (like SVK)
on top of subversion or find a different version control system that is
capabale of doing what you want.
A third option is to write your own hooks to move commits to the
appropriate places.
