Wish: Option to disable working copy cache (.svn)

[I've a little wish, but don't know if this is the correct forum to ask. Or maybe I should post to TCVS as TSVN is a descendant?]

We are using SVN not only to store source code but also other related files, like compiled objects, libraries, etc. These are binary files and of course we are not supposed to change them very often. We keep them in SVN as a central store.

So, this is how we are doing:
we checkout these binary files and export the whole folders to themselves to get rid of those .svn working copy cache (because these binary files are quite big).

It would be nice to have an option, even if it's in some well-hidden advanced locations, to do a checkout AND export at the same time (or equivalent like checking out without creating .svn at all).

OTOH, having this option isn't only useful for our case. I'm sure there're situations where people would like to just get the source code files without .svn.
