'svn export' is like 'svn checkout', but it doesn't create any
working-copy metadata at all. You're left with a completely
unversioned tree, ready for distribution, packaging, whatever you want.

Your request to store .svn/ metadata outside the tree has come up many
times over the years. So has the request to make the .svn/ "pristine
copies" cache into an optional thing. Those things, however, would
involve a complete rewrite of libsvn_wc.so, and thus is a far-off svn
2.0 thing. There are already feature requests filed on these.
