Sorry, I cannot answer to your original question.

I'd just like to advertise fsvs (http://fsvs.tigris.org/), which aims to
version directory trees *with meta-data-versioning*, ie. owner, group, mode

It doesn't use .svn directories, so that's one worry less.

It's still in development (and currently a bit stalled because of hardware
problems with my notebook), but it should already work for your setup.
