Sure, but *something* needs to know which files need to be updated.
That's why the version-control "stuff" is useful. There are 3
possible solutions, as mentioned before:

    1. Use a real working copy. It knows what it needs when you run
'svn up'. This is by far the simplest route.

    2. Use rsync. It's a bit more complex to setup, and still,
you're left with the odd question of: what are you going to rsync?
A local working copy to a remote working copy? Or will you
repeatedly 'svn export' locally, then sync it to a remote export?

    3. Write some complicated script to parse 'svn log -v', figure
out what needs updating yourself, and do it manually? This is really
hard to do.
