Projects sharing multiple directories

I am trying to set up a project that has a core svn archive, and many sub-projects (plug-ins). Each of the sub-projects share the directory tree with the core. I looked at the svn:externals, but that did not seem to address this problem. Consider the following as a single svn project directory structure:
Then, I want to be able to separately manage a third plug-in that may not get distributed with the rest of the program, but just to some folks. So, I want a second svn project to manage it. That being said, I want the final directory structure to look like:
Now, this single directory structure contains two overlapping svn projects. Is there a way to manage these two projects independently via svn, but allow them to co-exist in the directory tree like this? I would expect the svn repository to present just these two projects if all worked as I want...
When sitting at the "Program" level, I would love for svn to report differences in both the core project and the Plugin3 project.
