I'm aware of this, but it requires you to have the space lying around
for all the contents of the .svn directories, thus the "double the
amount of disk space you use" in my email. It may just be
temporarily, but it is still a potential problem. The original svn
export command actually did literally that (checkout + delete .svn
dirs), but we rewrote it for just this reason.
