Re: Export, remove .svn folders

Hi Stefan,

Personally I'd prefer to have the option for my svn client to take care
of this for me but that might just be my distaste for fiddling with the
internals of a working copy.

If the format changes again, it might be better to have preserved this
feature rather than removing it and having to put it back in again later.
