Don't you try to solve the wrong problem?

IMHO, the more general problem is that a (big) file takes twice the
amount of its size as local storage, even though the base version will
not necessarily be used. Couldn't there be an option to avoid caching
some files in the .svn directory? Well... there's already a reported
issue for that:
