There is a feature that's being worked on for subversion that at one
time was called takeover, no idea what they're calling it now.
Basically though, it would let you checkout on top of an existing
directory, which would re-create the .svn directories leaving your
files intact. Fairly sure this isn't making it into 1.4.
