As someone else mentioned, the WC code is particularly hairy, so it is
highly unlikely that any redesign of this kind will happen prior to a
complete rewrite of the WC code (i.e. 2.x timeframe). Among other
things, the WC code is extremely recursive in nature, meaning that each
folder is handled independent of the next. That is one major reason why
the .svn directories exist at each level.
