There are some enhancements we have made to Subversion that will be in 1.5
release. Once that is available we should be able to add this feature.
Please note however that even when we do this your .cvsignore files are
not going to work and you will probably even get asked to add those to
your repository. You need to setup the svn:ignore properties in
Subversion with whatever you had in those files.

Your only option is a clean checkout from Subversion. If you have local
files you want to maintain copy them somewhere first. Do not bother
copying the .cvsignore files into your SVN workspace for the reasons
already listed.
