Switchtower and Subversion

I have a small site I am working on; my subversion repository is on
the development machine. Do I have to have an additional repository
on the target server for Switchtower? I suppose I could mirror it
with svk, but I’d rather have my repository here and not out in the
world. Has anyone created a recipe to do a local checkout and push
your changes to the hosting provider with Switchtower? Thanks much.
