On windows, TortoiseSvn (*) provide an 'extended' 'export' facility: you can
ask to export all file in a separate directory, including the
non-versionned ones:
TortoiseSvn->Export, then tip the 'Export unversioned files too' checkbox.

with the command line tool, it seems (?) that the 'export' don't provide
facility. So I suggest that if you aren't on windows, you can maybe do first
an svn export (to have only the 'versionned' file out of a wc), then
something like:
    svn status --no-ignore | grep "^[I?]"
(to have the list of non-versionned (?) and ignored (I) files),
and manual cp/mv these files...

.... BTW, there is maybe better procedure...



(*) at least, the pre 1.5 versions
