svn on the Mac

I was trying to set up my Mac home directory under svn, but I'm running
into problems due to the way the Mac stores applications and some data
files (Pages, Quicken).

The problem is, to the GUI user, a Pages document looks like a single
file, but it is really an entire directory structure, consisting of
several files and subdirectories. This makes adding a Pages document a
slightly more complex task. I wrote some shell scripts to auto add new
documents, so this (for the most part) happens behind the scenes.

The 2 big problems I'm running into are that subversion adds .svn
directories throughout the "document", and it doubles the size. Plus,
if I ever move that document to another folder (using the gui), then all
the .svn info comes with it, which can cause some strange problems.

I have also seen that the Quicken "files" stop working once subversion
has placed the .svn directories in it. This might be a security thing,
or maybe lazy Quicken programmers. Who knows.

I'm sure there is no easy answer to this, but has anyone else had to
deal with this and come up with a good solution? I'm assuming no, but I
thought I'd ask.
