Re: Feature Suggestion: Ability to specify dedicate path for .SVN folders.

Workaround for .svn folders + VS.NET <http://VS.NET> web projects:
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#vs-asp-net
and
http://pluralsight.com/wiki/default.aspx/Fritz/AspNetWithoutWebProjects.html

My team uses the "convert to local class projects" option - this works
*great*, and you will actually find it has value aside from the .svn issue
workaround with VS.NET <http://VS.NET> (less configuration headaches.)
