That's already possible in the dialog.

Not a good idea: what if the user has a typo in the entered path?
Creating that would be wrong. So the target has to exist.

I don't think that's really necessary. Since now with 1.7, there's only
one single .svn directory. So exporting from a working copy is as easy
as simply copying the working copy, then removing the one and only .svn

However if you want to export from a repository (using an url), the
export dialog looks the same as the checkout dialog.
