Can svn have a project containing other svn projects?

At home I have many small collections of related files that are
essentially libraries (some are, some are just a set of files) that I
share/use in many of my applications. I'm attempting to place things
under version control (I chose svn) and I'd like to avoid is a mandatory
directory layout. For instance, I'd like to get away from a Visual
Studio project having files at ../../shared/MyLibSrcA. Plus, I don't
like the idea of re-creating my current directory structure in what I
believe would have to be a single svn repository. I was planning on
having multiple repositories, one per Visual Studio project. But, I
need to share all those collections of files/libs.

At work, our version control system lets us add other projects as a
subproject to a project. In other words, a project can have files AND
other projects. So, you can share projects. That way, you can include
various projects of files and when you create your "sandbox", all the
files can be in one directory. Can svn do this? I looked at the add
and import commands & they appear to be file oriented.
