Do be aware that this is the "nuclear option" of SVN, and even if used carefully will likely result in rendering any existing working copy invalid (sometimes in subtle and terrible ways), requiring that everyone who has a working copy perform a full re-checkout.

So don't do this as a matter of course. Only do it if you absolutely must get the data out of the repository *AND* are not planning to re-add it. (ie. ensure your zip file is never re-added. Instead add a script to create the zip file from files that are in SVN, or from the build outputs thereof.)

The basic rule is to never version any files that can be generated (even indirectly) from other versioned files.
