Well, that basically sounds like you should be using a branch and
aren't (even just a branch for the EclipseWorkspace dir). But, if you
are using bash, you can do thos:

shopt -s extglob
svn up !(EclibseWorkspace)

The !(...) syntax is an extended glob that says 'match everything
EXCEPT this' and can be a more complicated expression like
!(perl|python|j2ee-*) etc.
