+1 from me too (also non-voting), as long as the first step above is
optional (since at least for me, there is usually already something in
the repository that I don't want to overwrite).

FWIW, this sort of in-place conversion to checkout is already possible
with svk:

        svk import --to-checkout

so that may be an argument that the above two steps could be collapsed
to one (once the takeover functionality exists in the core).
