Yes; that's very easy with Subversion. A branch is basically a copy of a 
file or directory, but it retains full version history. You can apply 
changes to the trunk or to the branch and merge them if they don't 
conflict. It's *very* easy with Subversion and you'll know exactly how 
to do it if you've read the Subversion book (esp. chapter 3 & 4).
