Wishlist -> very lightweight tool for GETing files from a svn repo

Hi

I'm using subversion for managing bits of web sites and some
sets of HTML templates and the machines that these sites are hosted
on are a variety of different old Linux boxes, slackware, debian etc
and what they all have in common is the fact that I don't have root
on them and that installing a subversion client is not really a
possibility.

As a result I have to checkout stuff on another machine and then scp
/ rsync it on the hosting machine. This isn't great, if I was using
cvs I'd just update stuff directly from a cvs server.

I'd like a small, lightweight tool that can be used for GETing all
the files in a subversion repository and for updating the files.

A tool like this could just be a simple wrapper for wget that
recursively GETs all files (apart from the index.html files) and
then before getting them again compares ETags by doing HEAD requests
to see if another GET is needed.

For example there is a little Perl wrapper for wget here that
creates a cache for ETag data:

I might get around to writing something like this myself, but if I
do it would probably be a rather horrible bash script!
