I don't know how much cleverness you're prepared to put in your backup
scripts, but it seems to me that the output of "svn status -v", along with
the contents of any modified/workspace-only files (other than built
files), would cover the vast majority of what needs to be backed up. The
"svn status -v" information would allow (with a suitable script) a
working copy to be created that had the same BASE versions as the
original; then copying in the modified/created files would produce a WC
largely equivalent to the one backed up. (Of course you'd need to do a bit
more work if backing up changes to properties was important...).

Just a thought...
