Not really. Subversion does not store type / creator information, or
resource forks. It stores the data fork only.

On Mac OS X, I have not had to worry about type / creator information
in many years; are you sure you have to? For example, if you have a
bunch of, say, .txt files, and by default these open into, I don't
know, TextEdit maybe, and you would rather use BBEdit, then just
click one of the .txt files in the Finder, Get Info on it, in the
Open With section select BBEdit, then click the Change All button,
and from then on, all .txt files will open into BBEdit. No need to
muck with type / creator codes ever again.

Does that help you?
