I do almost this same thing. For the application I manage, I need to
keep track of changes to the database schema and do so by keeping the
scripts that can be used to generate the tables in the repository. On
a monthly basis, we have generate new copies of the scripts for all
the DB objects. I delete all the files from my WC, then place the new
ones in their place. I check the status of the WC, remove any missing
files from the repository (svn del), add any new ones, and then

I'm lucky here in that everything is in one directory. It's a kludge,
but it works.
