Make it simpler to create a new project

Tortoise SVN seems to be more geared at people who are downloading an existing project, rather than creating a new one from scratch. Could you please make it more intuitive to create a new project (or more accurately, create a new repository based on a bunch of files & directories recently created).

Currently, the process is very confusing, especially when it's your first time or on subsequent projects when it's been more than a week since creating a new project/repository. You've got to "Create a repository here" (C:/sw_dev/svn/New Folder), then go back to your working directory and "Check out". (is that actually the best way to do it?)

I think it would be a lot easier if you could just right click on your base directory, say "Create new repository", or perhaps something that sounded less like "create repository here", and not as if we are about to check out from an empty repository (and perhaps delete existing files in project).
