.SVN folder question

Hi all out there!

If I understood correctly this was a thread some time ago under the
name of "SVN droppings":

I want to use Subversion for web site production. However, it puts a
hidden folder ".svn" into each directory of my working copy. Of
course I rather not want to see this folder uploaded, both for
webspace and online transfer time/cost. I can filter out these
Subversion folders in the FTP app I use (TotalCommander, formerly
Windows Commander), but as I have to set this filter again for
every upload this is not very convenient (though more related to
TotalComm than Subversion).

However, when shortly testing Perforce I found that for version
control it is not mandatory to place administrative data into the
working copy. So the question Is there already a setting to move
these hidden folders to another place, either a central folder in the
working copy or even elsewhere? Or could this be seen as a
suggestion for future releases?

BTW testing Perforce was an outright desaster. First, I could not
hit F1 without it trying to connect to the web - and that for every
help page I might then choose from the contents again! Second,
since being practically unable to use help I could not find a working
way to put folders/subfolders under versioning. Integration with
HTML editor Homesite is buggy and limited anyway. And just this
was the reason I tried Perforce at all. Thus I now continue with
setting up Subversion, first locally, then on the LAN.

TIA - God bless!
