Of course you can do that, but it's IMHO not advisable: One wrong
keystroke and not only your working copy, but also your repository is gone.

Also, since you're clearly going to use subversion for all future
projects as well, you'll want to put all your repositories in one place,
so you can serve them via svnserve (even if you're the only developer).

Having everything in one repository is a perfeclty valid setup. You can
