svn switch is exactly what I need.

Is it possible to create "local svn repository" (not "working copy"
here) for few svn branches in my desktop ? I don't want entire branch
from version 1-1000 in my local svn repository, but just head, as I
always (so far) work with head version. Whenever needed I can first
update (?) this local svn repository from central svn repository, and
then update / switch my devenv from here, before doing complete build.

is this preferable approach when compared to "svn switch" directly
from central svn repository ?
