Add an existing directory tree to subversion?

Apologies if this is a FAQ, I couldn't find the answer anywhere.

Is there a way to add an existing directory tree to a subversion
repository and have that tree (in place) be a working copy?

It seems to me the answer is 'no'.

That is, you have to import the existing directory tree into a
subversion repository, and then checkout, but checkout won't work on top
of the existing directory tree (it complains about objects already
existing). So yuo have to checkout to a new location.

Am I missing something painfully obvious?
