We've done such a thing using a working copy that gets updates with svn up and rsync to keep the export directory up to date without transfering too much data. rsync does handle adding and removing directories, what it does not do IIRC is handling renames.
This has been working pretty well so far. Make shure not to forget to check the return value of "svn up" and exit if something went wrong.
