There's nothing wrong with each project being in its own repository, as
long as they are truly independent. Subversion best practices call for
the root directory of a repository to contain only the "trunk",
"branches", and "tags" directories. The actual project code would be
contained within the "trunk" directory, which is then copied to a subdir
of "branches" or "tags" to branch or tag the code. This is discussed in
detail in the svn book: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/

So if you follow that best practice, your .project file would be within
the trunk directory, not in the root, and Subclipse would be able to
check it out from there.
