Yep, that's exactly what it is. The server can't tell the network
request apart. Checkout and export simply use different
implementations of a vtable that receive tree-deltas. One
implementation does tons of logging and file-manipulation in
the .svn/ areas, and is entirely built around .svn/. The other
implementation blindly writes data to disk.

So, most of the code is shared. Just not all.
