Try this script:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/client-side/svn-viewspec.py

It would be nice if a "viewspec" feature would make its way into Subversion
core in one way or another. There have been discussions about this on the
mailing lists in the past. However, AFAIK nobody is working on such a feature
at the moment.
