Replace "interested in" with "capable of" and you would be more
accurate. I don't think I know enough of the library code to perform
such a change. At a guess, my first pass would be to find the highest
point to replace export code with the corresponding checkout code, then
see about changing the checkout code to prevent writing the admin
directories when a flag was set.

Of course, but if there was a groundswell of support for this addition,
it could be added to the 1.3 API (since that signature is already rev'd
from 1.2). I don't hold out much hope for that, but I thought I'd
mention it...
