This restriction does not apply to working copies. However, since svn manipulates lots of small files in certain operations, you may notice a significant speed penalty - checkouts, commit and updates are noticeably slower [at least for me], especially on a larger source tree.

With an FSFS-backend, you can even store your repository on a network share.
