(I'm not subscribed, BTW)

I did some quick tests with TortoiseSVN 1.7.14 (based on Subversion 1.7.16) and while it refuses
to add/commit the name ".svn",
I could rename an existing versioned object (both file and folder) from another name to the
name ".svn" and commit it (local repository).

It is an old version, but if interested, someone can check this with the latest software.
