Write a hook to do the automatic checkout.

The short answer is that Subversion does not come with *specific* support
for the CVS checkoutlist. *However* ... Subversion's hooks are more than
capable of doing the same thing.

I could see setting up a repository laid out like:

/
  trunk/
  tags/
  branches/
  hooks/

And then set up the right hook scripts to look for changes to the hooks/
area and go and update that area.
