Is there any difference? Reading is reading, right? If I can read the
file, I can certainly save it to disk, or copy and paste into a file
and save to disk.

Perhaps if you gave more context, about what you mean by "allow a user
to view a file"... through a web browser? By running 'svn cat'? Maybe
you can also explain why viewing and checking out are any different in
your mind...

(Unless you're using the term "checkout" to mean "lock the file down"?)
