Versioning my /etc and other directories

Hello,

I would like to put my /etc folder (and others like it) under
Subversion control.

There seems to be a catch-22.

I can import everything into Subversion ok.
But I really don't want to do a checkout over my etc directory.
If I try to Subversion whines about stuff already being there.

If only there was a way to have Subversion simply write the .svn
folders into my current /etc folder all would be well.

Why can't we import things in place and have Subversion start
versioning from what's already there instead of having to do a checkout?

That way we would also get to keep the original modification dates
and times on the files.

Anyone?

I'm hoping there is a way, (hack or not) to do what I want.

If there is, I'm going to put all kinds of stuff under version control.

Thanks,
ml
