cd local/dir/of/this/webapp
svn mkdir url://repository/place/for/new/webapp
svn co url://repository/place/for/new/webapp .
svn add *
svn revert file-that-I-do-not-want-added another-file-not-to-add
svn commit

I.e., we turn the existing root of the webspace into a WC, and then use
normal "svn add" and "svn revert" to select/unselect things for addition
within that WC, then commit.
