Yeah. It's better to archive your original .svn folder somewhere else
temporarily and then restore it afterwards, if you *really* must delete
the folder.

Are you absolutely sure you have to delete the whole folder? VS2005
doesn't require that for anything that I'm working on -- at most, if
you're paranoid, you need to delete some of the contents of a folder,
not the whole folder.
