Sure... it sounds like you'd want the "nightly tarballs" to be live
working copies. But even so, how could the working copies update
themselves completely? Most people have cvs installed, so the apr,
apr-util and neon trees could be updated -- but not the main svn tree
itself, unless you have an svn binary lying around already. It
becomes a chicken-and-egg problem. :-)
