We have exactly that in place here. Basically, the post-commit script
takes a look a which files where modified, and re-exports any branch
that got updated into the appropriate directory.

I was lazy and did it by doing an rm -rf directory then exporting,
rather than trying to extract/update/delete individual files as
appropriate, though in hindsight I think I would have been better off
configuring apache to lock out access to .svn directories, then then
just make the directories working directories so all I'd need to do
would be to run an update. As is, the site (partially) disappears until
the export is done.
