svn update does just that. It only needs the .svn meta data to work.
In 1.6, you need to exclude more than one .svn directory when archiving the
working copy. In 1.7, the meta data will be in a single .svn dir at the root
of the working copy, which should be even easier to deal with.

I don't see added value in making svn export do that, because svn export
would have a much harder time to detect non-modified files than update
ever will.
