Another possibility would be using SVK instead of Subversion client. SVK
has the nice "view" feature which allows the definition of a working
copy structure independend of the repository structure.

Unfortunately most Subversion clients like TortoiseSVN or eSVN can't be
used for SVK working copies.

I don't know if the view feature implemented in SVK 2.0.1 will be stable
enough for production purposes. SVK 2.0.0 had problems with views.
