Just add them as folders. For the most part, it works just fine.
That's also how Xcode handles them.

You need to be careful with Pages bundles. When you save in Pages it
makes a new bundle with the same name and does not preserve the ;svn
folders. I work around this by archiving Pages documents as zip files
before checking in. If enough people report this as a bug to Apple
maybe they'll fix Pages.
