There's a new feature in trunk (up for 1.5) which supports this: the
--force parameter for 'svn checkout'. It'll use any files already in
your working copy as wc files, adding .svn directories and text-bases
from the repository. Any differences between the repository and local
disk will be reported as modified by svn status.
