Well, actually.. if ya wanna get technical about it.. I renamed the
plugins/ and themes/ folders to something else, bumped them up to blog
root/ (after having deleted the other stuff) using the FTP client. Then
deleted the original wp-content/ folder (which contained the .svn
folders from Dreamhost) .. because SVN Checking out fails for
wp-content/ because if it already exists, the folder won't be able to be
added so it won't work.
But after the NEW SVN CO was done.. I manually moved the "renamed"
plugins/ themes/ folders into the new wp-content/ folder.. into their
respected original homes.. then bumped up ONLY the custom plugins or
themes I was using.. then life was peachy.. =D
