Obtaining new .svn directories

From: James <excess_at_gmail.com>

I thought this might have been an obvious necessity (yet google has gotten
me no where) but is there any way to get a .svn directory if its accidently
been modified or removed? For example say I had a large project with upwards
of 1000 files and I accidently deleted the root .svn directory. Do I really
need to re-checkout the entire project (with all its files) just to fix the
missing .svn directory?

I've tried doing a svn checkout in the non-versioned directory hoping svn
would be able to re-create the missing .svn directories but instead it just
gives me an error stating "svn: Failed to add directory 'XXX': object of the
same name already exists". If only I could tell it to ignore those
directories/files... am I doing something wrong here?
