Maybe not /quite/ what you're looking for, but you can do this in
svn propedit svn:externals .

It will pop you into an editor (well, you have to set it in
~/.subversion/config first), where you can add:
1.manual https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/trunk/pd/1.manual
5.reference https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/trunk/pd/5.reference
6.externs https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/trunk/pd/6.externs
7.stuff https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/trunk/pd/7.stuff
sound https://pure-data.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pure-data/trunk/pd/sound

and then you'd need another folder for dd stuff (or of course you
could create dddoc/ one level up and just track doc/).

Those folders would update every time you ran "svn up" in a dir above
them, and changes you make to them locally will not be committed
unless you explicitly "svn ci" from inside one of those folders.

svn:externals modifications get checked in to the repository like
anything else, so this change would propagate to everyone with
desiredata/ checked out.
