Working copies and repositories can be freely moved or deleted, without
Subversion noticing it. Mind, if you move your repository, your working
copy obvious can't find it any more. You can redirect your working copy
back to your moved repository with "svn switch". The "Magic" of
Subversion is all in the .svn directories in your working copy. Try "svn
info" on a directory, there you see the URL/path to the repository. Then
take a look in the .svn/entry file, you'll see exactly the same there.
It's all in your mind, uhh, .svn directory. No outside knowledge required.
