Alternate VS WebProject Work Around

The suggestions I've seen to work around the IIS/VS bug for web projects have been either use the non-standard subversion build that uses "_svn" folders (yuck) or not use web projects at all (less yucky, but inconvenient).
I have found that if I manually create empty ".svn" folders in the VSWebCache folder for the project, everything goes swimmingly. This is a bit of a pain in the butt, but scripting it should be easy - even as a windows batch file. The next logical step would be for the TortoiseSVN folks to make it an option in the client.
