Good point.

Are you manually checking out to the webserver, or using a script?

I would use a script [1] to check out a working copy to a staging area, then
copy to the webserver excluding *.fla and *.psd.

I would guess that Subversion is concerned with providing what's in the
repository as-is -changing what you see when you look at it in a particular
way may cause confusion.

HTH,
Dave.

[1] Ant build file by preference.
