Actually, it's not easy to do that. When you try to do the checkout, svn
creates a template ~/.subversion directory before checking out the files
from the copy of your home directory, and you immediately get
"Obstructed update", which is awkward to work around. (At least, this
was the case ten releases or so ago when I tried to do it.) I eventually
gave up on storing ~/.subversion in my home directory repository.
