Such a setup is possible with SVK:

http://svk.bestpractical.com/view/HomePage
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/SVK_(Software)

I used it for some months quite successfully but the main disadvantage
is that it doesn't create the Subversion meta data in the sandboxes, so
it isn't possible to use tools like kdesvn or TortoiseSVN with SVK. But
this is also an advantage because on setups with multiple sandboxes this
can save a lot of disk space and also doesn't "pollute" the sandbox. The
meta data is kept in SVK's own repository.

SVK also uses its own merge tracking system which usually also works
with mixed Subversion and SVK environments, but I also noticed that some
changes had been "stuck" in the SVK repository.

Another nice feature of SVK is the possibility to have views which are
missing on Subversion. Unfortunately once I corrupted my SVK repository
when using views and wasn't able to push my changes from SVK to the
Subversion back-end, so these changes were completely lost. I don't know
if the current SVK release (2.0.2) has fixed those problems with views.

With best regards
