Developing SCC provider - need a better understanding of SVN process flow

After reviewing the largely inadequate list of SCC providers that work
with SVN, I have decided it would be best to "roll our own" solution.
This has the added benefit that we can customize it's operation based
on our in-house needs easily, and it gives me an opportunity to get
really in-depth with the SVN process flow. I have settled on the
SharpSVN library primarily due to it's somewhat better documentation,
although what's there still leaves much to be desired. Hopefully as I
gain better insight, I can start contributing to the documentation
efforts.

In dealing with an SVN project (particularly when viewed from the SCC
perspective), how does "starting" an SVN project work? For instance,
let's say I have a codebase that I'm migrating to source control. How
would I inform SharpSVN that I want "C:\\dev\\src\\someproject\\" to
become the working folder, and that it already contains some files? I
don't want to, at that point, update or commit. I merely want to make
updating, committing, and adding an option. It would be similar to
choosing "Check Out" in TortoiseSVN, but not immediately versioning,
merging, or modifying the files.
