That's a very unusual way of working! Keep the working copies on your hard disc
- I have a dozen large projects on two PC's at work, and my home PC. Sometimes I
won't touch a particular WC for months (esp at home!!).

Before you start work, just run 'SVN Update' on the WC, and it has all the
latest changes. No need for repeated checkouts and deletes.

(personally I think 'checkout' is seriously misnamed in SVN. It implies some
trace is be being left on the server. It should be called 'Make WC' - no
residual on the server, no cost in keeping them around for months).

Disc space is cheaper than network bandwidth!!

(and, worst case senerio, if your SVN server explodes and your backup tapes get
eaten by a dinosaur, you still have that WC on your workstation).
