In cases where you do not want a .svn directory and you are using Linux, 
take a look at FSVS:

This is a command line tool that works very similar to the "svn" 
command-line tool and talks to an SVN repository.  We make heavy use of 
it to version-control our Linux servers (especially the files under 
/usr/local, /boot and /etc).

The big difference over using FSVS vs SVN on the Linux box is that FSVS 
does not create a .svn folder in the root.

I don't know off-hand if FSVS can be used in Cygwin under Windows.
