Of course, I totally agree, it's more convenient to simply update a wc
(I know about svk too, never used yet tho) but, when the svn server is
not available to the outside network and the destination server is not
under your control you have to use whatever you can. I thought this
was the case with the thread starter and that he was misunderstood.
