Temporarily stash all .svn directories

I have started using Subversion on some web sites. I also use Adobe
GoLive (V6) on the sites, and the proliferation of .svn files is a
burden to GoLive's site management features. There is no way to tell
GoLive to ignore the directories, so the project sizes grow big,
processing slows down, and the files show up everywhere (e.g. in
synching local site tree to web server).

I could not find any good way to shelter the administrative
directories, so I wrote a Perl script to stash the directories in a
parallel tree. My thought is that I can move the admin directories
out of the source tree, do a GoLive scan to update its internal data
structures, then move them back.

I realize that this is a total kludge. Would there be a better way
to accomplish the same thing ?

The file is here: http://www.technoscope.com/adirstasher.zip

(Unsupported. Barely tested on OSX. Totally untested on any other
platform. Probably won't work. May erase your disk and kill your
dog. Use at your own risk. Have adequate backups. Etc.)

Thanks in advance for any help or comments.
