Hi Peter,

I assume your requirement is rather about the intended folder/check-out
structure on your local machine rather than the requirement to have
multiple .svn-directories in your working copy.
If I'm not mistaken here, then you might wanna rethink your folder
Wouldn't something like this work for you?

     /- myOwnWorkingCopy
         /- here's your own checkout
     /- student1WorkingCopy
         /- here's the checkout for the 1st student
     /- student2WorkingCopy
         /- another checkout for the 2nd student
     /- ....

In other words: you have separate checkouts and separate working copies
for yourself and all your students.
