Sorry Ben, it's not that easy. I've had my home directory under version
control for years now, and I'll betch that Colin has a ton of stuff
being svn:ignored and doesn't want to have to cull his working copy for
that stuff. Am I right?

Anyway, if that's the case, after you do what Ben points out above,
write a little shell script that deletes all 'svn:ignore' properties in
your working copy (don't forget any global ignores you set in your
~/.subversion directory), then run svn st on your working directory and
all the (previously) ignored files will show with ? marks next to them.
With the help of your favorite editor, you should be able to turn this
into a list of files to copy into your new working copy.
