Ooh! Ooh! Another use-case for preserving commit times on export!

Sinbad: although "svn export" presently does what you say, we
recently agreed that it really make the files have the timestamp of
when they were last checked into SVN. It's turning out to be a
little harder to do than expected (different operating systems do it
in different ways), but I think it's still in the plan. So once
that's done, you'll be able to 'svn export' the while web tree, and
upload only the changed files, and search engines won't be tricked
into uploading unchanged files.

I don't know about Sinbad, but I don't run my own web server (my ISP
does), and it doesn't have SVN installed. I do run my own SVN repo,
and do my website maintenance from my own machine, but when I like my
changes I have to upload them still. (I don't want to serve my
website through my DSL, nor yet from my pesonal computer).
