Come to think of it.. If OP's goal is to keep a huge working copy updated
with the least possible amount of network traffic, then just do the
obvious; make a normal working copy with 'svn co' and keep it updated with
'svn up'. This way you pay up front with a full 'svn co', but you pay only
once. All 'svn up' after this will be as cheap as can be.
