The OP has stated on the SVN users list that it's "impossible" for him
to use the CLI client, but he can write batch files using
TortoiseProc. I don't comprehend this, as it is quite possible to
install svn as a non-Admin user on WinXP at least (just not in Program
Files, and without the ability to modify the global PATH).

From what I could tell from the documentation I found online, one
can't export from a URL via TortoiseProc, the source has to be a local
path. But I hope I'm wrong.
