Cloning Subversion system information

Hi, folks!

Sorry, the subject sounds a bit weird but I simply couldn't find a
better one, let me explain.

Say I have some skeleton project in the remote repository called Foo.
Foo has some basic files/directories layout and all svn:externals and
svn:ignore properties nicely configured.

What I'd like to achieve is to allow other developers fill their
working copies attached to other repositories with this skeleton
project svn entries.

Something like this:

svn clone svn://repos/skel/Foo .
svn ci .

Or directly onto repository:

svn clone svn://repos/skel/Foo svn://myrepos/Bar

One might recommend simply physically copying Foo repository and
checking the copied repository out. However this is not always
possible, the remote repository can be simply unavailable physically,
or the Foo skeleton project can be a part of really huge repository
and copying it doesn't make sense(why really have 5k+ commit logs
history in a new clean repository?)

Probably this is already somehow possible and there are some best
practices or tools which allow to achieve this. Any tip in this
direction could be very helpful. Thanks in advance!

Best regards, Pavel
