I'll be talking about just that tonite.  For those who don't want to wait...

Just backup your local depot (~/.svk/local by default).  You don't have to worry about backing up the checkout directories if you commit early and often.  SVK encourages this with its local checkouts and easy branching.

If you want to back up the working directories as well parse out the locations of your checkout directories from "svk co -l" and back them up.
