That's a common scenario, for example it applies to:

http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html#website-auto-update
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/server-side/svnpubsub/svnwcsub.py

so enhnacing the core to support it better is not a bad idea.[1] I'm
not sure whether specifically svn update --do-not-crawl-the-disk is the
best way forward; Johan's suggestion of a broader users@ discussion
might lead to identifying a better solution.

[1] Disclaimer: y $OTHERWORK uses svnwcsub to manage >15GB of live web
sites (with wc's on local disk), so I have an interest here.
