Yes and no :-) It would be possible to take the code from "export" and
meld it with the code from "tar". As the data comes in from the repo,
you can then write it straight out to a tar file, rather than to
individual files.

viewvc seems to do exactly this - with python code, using the python
bindings. I've been thinking about writing something similar in C.
viewvc for me fails, because it doesn't support authz. I like WebSVN,
but its tarball feature is broken in several ways. An svntar command,
would make WebSVN tarball download much better.
