No, Subclipse deletes it. It does so because the svn checkout command
will fail if it encounters a file/folder of the same name. Short of doing
a check on every local file, we have no way to know if this is going to
happen, so we clean out the project folder before we issue the checkout

The enhancement that Subversion is considering is just making the checkout
process overlay an existing file/folder. Another alternative is to
preserve the existing file, but still create the pristine version. Either
way would work nicely for us.
