On the face of it, I think you're correct here. However, I also think
you're missing a key piece of detail.

Say I check out 'trunk' from RepoA:


But then I want to put 'trunk/conf' from RepoB inside 'trunk/conf' from

rm trunk/conf/*
cd trunk/conf/
svn co http://server/repoB/trunk/conf .

and I get these files from RepoB:


Now.. you're correct that there's a .svn directory at trunk/conf/.svn/
which says that trunk/conf/foo and trunk/conf/bar belong to RepoB. But
there's also a .svn directory at trunk/.svn/ which says that all of
trunk/conf belongs to RepoA. And thus you have a conflict.

The solution of not including trunk/conf in RepoA is probably your best
bet... with the caveat that doing an 'svn status' in your working dir,
or in trunk/ will always list trunk/conf with a ? status.. since it
doesn't belong to RepoA.
