RE: .svn folder needs to go away?

I wasn't asking how to checkout a repository to a different named
directory. What I was referring to was this...

(a) You have http://host/repo/trunk/Characters checked out to Chars

Chars/Ogre
Chars/Ogre/Textures

(b) You copy-paste (via the OS) Chars/Ogre to Chars/Elf

Chars/Ogre
Chars/Ogre/Textures
Chars/Elf <-- points to Characters/Ogre
Chars/Elf/Textures <-- points to Characters/Ogre/Textures

The problem I mentioned was that I don't like the fact that, because the
.svn directories are copied too, Svn doesn't recognize a problem with
the previous structure. Chars/Ogre and Chars/Elf will both be synced
with Characters/Ogre. This is the problem. He's asking for a way to not
copy the .svn directories so Svn recognizes them as new
files/directories. My suggestion was to remove .svn dirs after the
copy-paste or use the export command.

$ svn checkout http://host/repo/trunk/Ogre Elf
A Elf/foo
A Elf/bar
[...]

Or, do a checkout of 'trunk' to some working copy, cd into the working
copy's "Elf" directory and run

     $ svn switch http://host/repo/trunk/Ogre

Now the directory named "Elf" reflects the Ogre URL.
