How about this: set up your repository initially, then check it out to
some empty folder. Then copy all files from that folder to your root

I believe that all files in the magical .svn directories use relative
paths, so after the first time, you should be able to add, checkout, and
commit files as you want. Everything else that already exists on your
filesystem will just be treated as an unversioned file. Of course,
you'll end up with .svn directories all over the place, but there's
really no way to avoid that.
