Moving .svn directories out

From: <webpost_at_tigris.org>

1. svn checkout <url> (into dir Test1)
2. svn export <url> (into dir Test2)

Test1 is 24341 files, 9873 folders, occupying 435MB disk space.
Test2 is 9652 files, 1097 folders, occupying 216MB disk space.

Is the SVN overhead really 201% disk space, 252% # of files, and 900% # of directories ?

Since the .svn directories reside within the same tree structure as the source files, this slows down recursive operations (e.g. string
searches across files), and increases the amount of space needed to backup the source tree.
Is there a way to move the .svn directories (and related sub-contents) to another parallel root tree structure, keeping my source files in a separate tree structure?
