I wonder if it would be possible for SVN to add .svn folders to each level
of the external folder path. For example:

foo/bar http://svn.blah.com/....

would result in a foo folder with the following directories:


In this case, 'foo' isn't really a versioned folder, but it acts as one
since it has a .svn folder in it. Again, this is definitely a topic for the
Subversion mailing list, However I'm curious as to your opinions on this
idea Stefan.

Thanks for helping out.
