checkout to existing tree

From: Chris Little <CLittle_at_sbs.com>

I have a third party development environment that gets installed by a
windows installer. Problem is that the source code for our project is mixed
in with this development tree. So when I initially try to checkout to the
environment svn complains that directories already exist, which is
understandable. So I have a few options:

1. do a svn co to a temp directory and then copy that directory over on top
of the development tree. This is what we do now. Appears to work, but feels
like duct tape.

2. Place the whole development tree with our project into version control. I
think there qould be problems with this since the installer does more than
just copy files. So I would have to install, delete the development tree,
then checkout the tree on each new machine.

So are there other options that I am missing, or am I missing some larger
picture here? I looked at the vendor branches but this appears to only work
for discrete seperation of files, whereas our project files are in some of
the same directories as the vendor files.

Are there plans for a checkout force?
