I did that on Plesk, but I have full access to the Plesk server as 

First, Placed TYPO3 source into /var/www (outside all vhosts), let's say 
2. Uploaded "dummy" into vhosts/httpdocs (particular domain)
3. Changed typo3_src symlink to /var/www/typo3-4.5-src
4. For particular vhost created conf/vhost.conf and placed all rewrite 
stuff into it AND re-wrote open_basedir (otherwise it will not follow 
symlink to source)

<Directory /var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs>
     php_admin_value safe_mode off
     php_admin_value open_basedir 

But again, to do 1) you have to have root access to the Plesk server :(
I haven't tried to install source into a separate "domain" but you can 
try, don't forget to re-define open_basedir in vhost.conf for each typo3
