RFC: "svn export -r X:Y" to update an existing export

From: Greg Hudson <ghudson_at_MIT.EDU>

Sometimes people like to keep an up-to-date checkout of their
repository around for reference purposes. Such a checkout is never
modified and never has mixed revs. It also isn't precious; if it gets
corrupted due to an accidental modification or interrupted operation,
it can be tossed out and recreated at the expense of some time.

It might be nice if people could do this without paying the fairly
heavy space and time penalty associated with working copy
administrative files. My idea is to make "svn export -r X:Y" update a
presumed existing export at rX to match rY. It would be up to the
user to keep track of the rev the tree is currently at.

I suggested this on IRC and people were a little skeptical, though not
exactly against it. I thought I would propose it on the list, and
then file an enhancement issue if there is some support and no
objections.
