This has already been discussed (probably more than once ;~), and it isn't
generally thought to be a good idea. By keeping the .svn directories inside the
WC itself (just like the CVS directory used to be stored), the WC's are portable
(you can move them around) without difficulty.

That being said, svk uses a different system, which Chia-Liang Kao refers to as
XD (that's WC+1), where the working copy doesn't contain a .svn directory. I
hope to have some time next week to try and help getting svk working on Win32...
