I read the FAQ but I'm not sure I agree that its a 'bad idea'. It won't do what you would want to do 'efficiently' on a move or copy but its no worse than any backup solution I've seen.
Our current backup solution is to run a script at login that does an 'xcopy' of C:\Backup with some options to limit it to new or changed files. The problem is that the network overhead is huge compared to using Subversion to do the same thing.
