Again, ala Bazaar.

1. Checking out a Working-Copy (WC) without a separate Meta-Data area (MD).

Creates a .svn at the top of the WC that has all of the meta-data
required for the WC to be completely standalone.

2. Checking out a WC into a folder that is enclosed by an MD.

Creates a .svn at the top of the WC that knows to locate and place
certain meta-data further up the path tree (no record of where,
relative or absolute, so that they are independently movable).

- Standalone WCs can be moved around freely.

- WCs inside an MD can be moved around freely within the MD.

- A command is needed to make a WC inside an MD into a standalone that
can be moved outside of the enclosing MD.

- A command is also needed to efficiently move a WC into an enclosing MD.

Other than a lack of means to clean-up, there's no reason we could not
support an argument to specify where the MD is rather than just look
for one in the parent path. That lack of clean-up could suck a bit
though.
