We could _always_ have a .svn directory at the WC root, right?
And if this directory does not host the meta data itself, it could
provide a pointer to where it thinks the meta data should be.

That a wc is fully operational on its own is very important, and I often move wc's around and it "just works". This was one of the reasons we moved from Vault.

Me thinks metadata should always reside a sole .svn folder in wc root, but it could optionally point to a shared location where base files are chached\shared between multiple wc's from same repo: lightning fast checkout of new branches:-) If I delete the shared location or move the wc to a different computer, it should still "just work": shared location will be rebuilt by automatically fetching files from repo.
