Hi.

put a file named "important.txt" in your repository
check it out to your local wording dir.
modify the "important.txt" locally.
==
be a "bad thing" and modifty something in
  ".svn/text-base/important.txt.svn-base" !
==
use svn revert.
you get the corrupted content from the text-base !

files in the .svn folder are read-only, unfortunately
this doesn't protect them from disk read errors or from
some recursive "search&replace" utilities for example.
