Correct, we do not support attaching a local project with one in the
repository. The underlying Subversion API's do not support it. You
have to checkout the project from the repository.

Subversion 1.5 (not released yet) has enhanced their checkout command
in a way that we could change this restriction. We would still have
to do a full checkout, pulling down all of the content from the
repository and over the network, but Subversion would "slide" the
checkout underneath your existing files. If there were differences,
they would show as outgoing changes. So it would be a small win to
add this and we likely will.
