I tried this and the problem that I ran into was that, as far as I can
tell, subclipse will not manage the directory. You will have to do it
externally. Such as adding another project, renaming a project, changing
properties on the directory, and so forth. Internally, each project has
its own url (at least the way I set it up). Because I had a single svn
root, I had the expectation that subclipse would do a single commit
against all the projects. Not so. (I did change to javasvn to get that

Basically, I found that things did not work as I expected. So I deleted
the .svn directory that was a sibling of .workspace and adjusted my
expectations according to experience.
