The example given there is very apt... because it demonstrates the
exact problem I am having. If I want to import just some of my /etc, I
can use the referenced method to do so *in place*. Very nice.

But when I go to check out that nicely versioned bit of /etc on another
box, I immediately run into the problem:
   svn: Failed to add ...: object of the same name already exists

You see the problem? I want to overlay the current head on an existing
directory.
