For clarity, lets call these "working copies". They are not "repositories".

If I were to draw a diagram of your Eclipse workspace would it look like this:

|- .metadata
|- .svn
|- Project1
|- Project2

Or like this:

|- .metadata
|- Project1
|-|- .svn
|- Project2
|-|- .svn

I have never seen one like the former. The second is what I would
call a "typical" workspace.

I do something else altogether, but sort of like what you describe. I
have Subclipse checked out here:


This has /trunk/plugins and that folder has a folder for each plugin project.

My Eclipse workspace lives at:


This folder is empty except for .metadata. I use Eclipse File >
Import > Existing Projects into Workspace to point the workspace at my
external checkout.

Of course, I also have other more typical workspaces that look like
the second example I gave,
