No, it's not possible. The closest you can get would be to compile in
your own get_projects or get_revision_cert_trust hook that looks at some
network share or compiled-in data that you don't tell people about, but
even then they'd just have to download a non-patched monotone and maybe
come up with their own project definition files.
