Hi Edward,

Most likely you will get the following, depending on the structure of
your repository(trunk is the name of my test case):

svn: 'trunk' is already a working copy for a different URL

So to answer your questions, -No- to all.

Note that I can put a WC off of another WC, ie I can checkout to a WC if
the checkout is done such that the checkout goes to a child directory of
the existing WC. This is what Kevin just posted, but I am not sure what
use that is unless you are doing something interesting(and you would
want to script it to avoid errors, just like Kevin proposed with the
update issue) - so you may want to use externals at that point.
Externals will allow you to have a checkout then grab other repository
files/directories during the checkout and have them in your WC as well.
This is a bad explanation of the capabilities, but the svnbook explains
it much better.
