Disk space usage

We've recently converted a cvs repository into a subversion using cvs2svn and
FSFS. We experince the following problem: The repository on the server is
only 5.5GB, which is half the size of the original cvs repository 11GB, but
when I checkout the trunk, then the resulting working copy is almost twice
the size, 19GB, of the original checkout of the cvs repository. We do have
large binary files, which we use as a method of file-sharing, and I realize,
that this will cause the file to be present in the working copy twice: in
the .svn directory and in the corresponding place of work. However, it would
appear that the subversion repository uses compression; does anyone know of a
simple way to enforce compression on the .svn directories or any other smart
trick to reduce the size of the working copy?

Thanks, Jon
