exports aren't incremental. So each invocation of that command is doing
a fresh export, overwriting what you might have had in the target.

Well, they aren't being "updated" by svn; they're being updated by the
operating system as a result of svn redoing the export.

Perhaps we should be setting directory timestamps on some or all
checkouts or exports; this is the first time anyone has thought about
it, I think.
