This is pretty much what I am thinking, as well.  I went to actually implement this, and ran into a problem.  When I propedit the svn:externals, I cannot do something like:

. svn+ssh://

where home is a repository of what i want to appear in $HOME.  I suppose I could pop up to /home on the client machine and edit the properties like

username svn+ssh://

but that is weird as I would essentially be working outside of my home dir.  

Is there a better way to do this?
