This secret way is not so secret at all. You can move and copy around
any working copy to your delight. Even more, every versioned folder
inside a working copy was (for SVN < 1.7)itself a working copy that you
could copy and move around.

This doesn't make sense. For example, a filesystem copy (as opposed to
an SVN copy) of files between working copies loses metadata. If it was
"svn add"ed in one WC and you copy it to the other, the other won't
consider it added. If you "svn propset" anything on the file and then
copy it to another location, the property won't be copied with it.

I'm not sure where your initial problems were, but your solution hardly
seems like an improvement to me. Maybe if you shared those initial
problems people could help you gain further insight...
