You did't ask that, but anyway: you can also prevent .svn directories
to show up through Apache HTTPD by using following setting:

# http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#website-auto-update
# Disallow browsing of Subversion working copy administrative dirs.
<DirectoryMatch "^/.*/\.svn/">
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

This way you can keep your .svn directories and update your site
directly from repository by running update.
