RE: a "no-.svn file" checkout?

If your intention is to check them out for a production environment you
could run svn export to filter out the .svn's

But if you're checking out as a "WORKING FOLDER" hoping to check back in or
communicate back with your repository, it is NOT advised that you delete any
of them as will sever your link to the Mothership!

Subversion checkouts produce a large number of files under the '.svn'
For build-only checkouts (nothing will be checked in), the '.svn' trees
serve any purpose other than to take up disk space and slow down copies of
checkout to other places.

Is there any way to filter out '.svn' files during the checkout process?
'find . ...'
scripts and similar time-consuming post-checkout processes would
not be necessary if the checkout simply dropped these non-productive

TIA for any suggestions.
