Ok, I originally just assumed you would have used svn properties
(svn:fsvs-ignore or whatever) for all metadata.

Ok, I will do that. I was hesitant to add fsvs' directory to version
control. It kinda felt like doing svn add .svn ;-)

I've put my homedir under version control as a normal user. I'm guessing
this will not only issue a warning, but will also not work if I check
out to a different base directory (for instance if my username is
different on another host).

Not unless they got creative and changed the name.
I only just noticed an ebuild has been submitted to bugzilla
(http://bugs.gentoo.o​rg/show_bug.cgi?id=1​93989), but it's not part of
portage yet.
