"svn checkout" can actually check out into a directory that already exists
and contains files. When a file already in the directory has the same name
as an incoming file, it is said to be "obstructing" and isn't changed,
instead marking it as a conflict (I think). I don't remember the exact
details. All I know is that I've done it before, it worked, and afterwards
I had to do a "svn revert -R ." in the working copy to un-mark everything
and then it was fine. I'm away from my computer so I can't copy and paste
the exact explanation but the output of "svn help checkout" (and most
likely the svn-book) should tell you about this.
