* There's no need to back up a working copy. You should backup the
repository instead!
* If you remove files and folders which are important for Subversion,
then you must expect Subversion to get angry and throw some errors at
your face.

You should ask for that feature on the Subversion mailing list: TSVN
don't (and never, ever will) mess around inside the .svn folder.
That's Subversions private area, and we don't touch others private
