Sounds reasonable enough.

I don't understand what you mean.

As you can see from another post in this thread, I have just been
informed of the current "svn export". What I want is that. With the
exceptions that the revision number that is exported is also stored, and
svn up is usable from within this tree.

This is for a quite specific circumstance, where a failed svn up would
be a little inconvienient, but not a real problem, i.e. you can always
re-export. And be back at where you would have been had you done a
compleate svn up.

Let me re-itterate, you would *never* make any changes in this tree.
That is it's reason to exist.
