In a working copy, there's 2 copies of each file - the file itself, and
it's BASE version in .svn/text-base.

In the case of MP3 files that are just added and checked out of the
repository, it's very, very likely for those to be one and the same.

I guess he could use a shell script (dunno if or how it's doable in
Windows' command line interpreter) to delete (or better, not copy) all
entries in .svn/text-base that are identical to their associated files
then looking for missing files in the target working copy and recreating
the missing files in .svn/text-base by copying from the working copy.

That should reduce the amount of extra space used for the repository to
a negligible amount...
