I guess, if you're going to do this with SVN, that you want a tool that
monitors the repository for changes, and when it sees a change, allows you
to specify an action to take (for example, running `svn update` on a
working copy to pull in the changes, or downloading individual files with
`svn cat`).

Commit Monitor is one such tool, designed to work with TortoiseSVN. If you
wait until version 1.9 comes out, I understand a similar tool is integrated
into TortoiseSVN.
