Hmm I see what you mean. The way I would envision it though, the
revision number stored in the exported tree would only be updated after
all files have been transfered. Hence an svn up after a failed svn up,
would grab a load of files it does not need to.

How much of a problem this is would depend on how often svn up failed.

I don't really see the difference, except what you type.

Your right, the finctionality to recognise that this tree has been
exported before could be put into export; Or svn up could be altered to
see that it is in an exported tree not a checked out tree.
