In that note you suggested using exports rather than checkouts to
avoid the .svn directories. Another way (on Unix, with GNU tools at
least) that may be more convenient: use --exclude=.svn in your diff
command.

(A variant of that is nice to verify correctness of a cvs2svn run:
check out the whole thing in CVS, check out the whole thing in SVN,
then diff -r --exclude=.svn --exclude=CVS cvs-sandbox svn-sandbox.)
