Yes your workaround is the only way I know. Write a simple script to do

Subject: Turn an unmanaged Directory into a working directory?
First, let me start with, I'm in a Windows environment.
I realize that a work around would be to check out the
repository to a separate directory, then copy the files to that
directory, the problem is, in the windows environment, when you copy a
subdirectory from one directory to another, if there's already a
directory with the same name in the destination, then the copy process
deletes the original directory in the destination and replaces it with
source. Subsequently the copy solution would delete the .svn folders in
the working directory if you tried to simply copy the non-managed
directory into the managed/working directory. The only solution I see
to this is a very tedious process of manually coping the contents of
each subdirectory separately, which would be a royal pain for some the
scenarios where this situation is occurring to us.
Thanks in advance,
