I'd expect this to work only in the case where the copied repository
is a strict backup of the one actively used - in which case svnsync is
probably an easier approach to updating the backup copy.   It will
certainly break if any other changes are made directly to the copy and
I don't think you can remove older revisions from your active
instances like you described.

git-svn might be a good fit if you don't mind using the git interface
for your work and have room for the local copy.  It can push your
changes back to a central svn repo in a way that can deal with other
concurrent work.
