checkout and collisions with existing files

Hello Subverion folks,

is there a way to do a svn checkout and have all existing files kept and
accepted as modified working copies? Or perhaps moved away to a backup
schema (* -> *.bk)? Or just accept them if they are identical to those in
the repository?

The behaviour of failing the checkout in that case makes svn a bit
unwieldy for the purpose of versioning configuration files on several
machines. Presumably you often have configuration files and directories on
a new machines that are versioned, while you may not want to delete the
directories completely (they could contain additional, unversioned files)
and perhaps want to merge the files that are versioned.

Is there an easy solution or do I have to write a shell script to work
around this?

Thanks for any advice!
