No. There is an awful lot of client side code involved with updating a
working copy. For example, you need to tell the server what versions of
everything you currently have, then it sends back a diff, much of which
is in a binary format. This diff needs to be applied to the working
copy files in a particular way... It goes on and on. If you want to
update a working copy you really need to use a the Subversion libraries,
either via pysvn or the svn command line.
