         Do you mean "checkout"? If you do, you should do an update
instead of checkout, which would handle the deletes for you. If you are
doing a "checkout", you must be deleting the directory first, because svn
wouldn't let you checkout on top of an existing .svn directory, right?
         We have a similar thing as you (I think) and the developers just
do updates, and then our release process does an "export" to remove the
.svn directories.
