One possible workaround is to keep a real WC on a disk on some sort of
support machine, and copy the working files between the WC and the CF card.
The Unison file synchronization utility would do a nice job of this, for

In regard to "Why do they do it that way?", the reasons seem (to me) to be
the same as for CVS -- each WC directory is self-contained, and every
subdirectory in a WC is a valid WC for a subtree of the source tree.

OTOH, how a WC is structured is entirely a decision by the Subversion
client -- if one rewrote the appropriate parts of the svn client, it could
organize the WC any way one wanted it to.
