It doesn't seem terribly ugly to me. This is what the getcwd()
function does on almost all Unix boxes, after all.

I like the idea of keeping metadata clutter as much out of the way as
possible; this is what P4 does, and it makes things like full-tree
greps a lot less cheesy to write. Keeping the metadata tree separate
from the main tree is the best way to do this, but using ".SVN" as the
metadata directory name seems like an OK compromise.


Let us pray:
What a Great System.
Please Do Not Crash.
