What if you clone the whole directory and work there?

Say, if you trunk is in project-trunk, you do ether

cp -a project-trunk project-test


svn export file:///my/svn/repo/project/project-trunk project-test

Now you can do whatever you want in the project-test, svn will not care a bit
about it ;). After you are happy with the result, copy the things back into
svn-controlled files and commit. Then 'rm -rf project-test'

I used to do so before I started using svn, and would probably do in the
situation like you describe.
