cant you just delete mu-plugins/.svn/ and then check out into .svn?
You'll loose the ability to keep any default plugins (which i dont
think there are any?) up to date via SVN..
SVN is designed to be able to handle customisations like that.
The other option (like mentioned), is to delete the mu-plugins folder,
and then create a svn:externals item for mu-plugins on the root of the
svn co, SVN will handle that nicely, i'm not sure how to add a
Svn:external via cli tools though.
