My thinking was that my (standard) svn would treat the .svn.vendor
directories just like any other directories. Not much different than making
a tarball of the vendor distribution when I get it and placing it on a CD,
just for safekeeping. In this case, the "just for safekeeping" part would
be in my subversion repository.

go use that instead :-) Thanks for the tip... I'll check it out.
