You could create a new top-level directory "suspended" or "on-hiatus"
or "old" and then "svn mv" all those projects which are not currently
being worked on into that directory. This is better than "svn rm"ing
the project because it's easier to recover them later -- just "svn
mv" them back where they came from. (If you "svn rm" it, you have to
remember what revision you deleted it at in order to restore it later.)

Optionally, if you require it, you could configure it so that normal
users do not have access to the contents of this directory,
effectively hiding those projects. Now people would be aware that
there are old projects, but not which old projects there are because
they can't get into that directory.
