Link a client directory to a different repository directory

Hello all,


I am upgrading a CVS server to SVN (clients and servers are all on
Windows). I used cvs2svn to convert the CVS repository to SVN
architecture. All went smooth except for one thing. For tidiness' sake,
all the files and directories that were at the root of the architecture
(it is an internal website) were put in a subdirectory ("root"). When
clients checked out the CVS repository, something moved the files from
the root subdirectory to the real root, so the client had a working
website architecture.


Now I have looked for the trick that does this in CVSNT, but I can't
find it. Neither do I in SVN. I have succeeded in getting the correct
website architecture in SVN by manually moving all the files from the
root directory to the real root, but I am a bit embarrassed by this
solution as it modifies the original structure of the repository.


Is there a way to do this exact same thing in SVN, having a different
repository architecture from what the clients get when they actually
check it out ? Or is the database-based architecture of SVN makes this
sort of trick useless anyway ?


Thanks in advance


Thibault Pairis.
