  If I understood the question correctly Š
  then a contrarian approach is to not commit your Team A work to trunk
but rather to your Branch A and then merge up to trunk when you are ready
with your changes.
  That way branch A is what you need.
  With git this is the common workflow, with new subversion this should be
more easily possible. Any ways conflicts are \ will need to be resolved by
  My 2c .. Hope this helps.
