The request comes up several times a month on the mailing list. Seems
like something that could be easily done up in a script, which seems
like an ideal candidate for including in the contrib directory.

If it can be implemented directly in the Subversion client, then fine
-- but that would probably be subject to much more strict scrutiny as
to conformance with the existing Subversion roadmap. For example: it
would not make sense to add the possibility of REV1:REV2 to *svn
checkout* because *checkout* creates a working copy. Possibly it
would make sense as an addition to *svn export* but before any work
was started the exact implementation should be agreed upon with the
Subversion core developers, since they would have the final say in
whether your modifications would be accepted or not. You would have
to write up a proposal and send it to the developers' list.

You could avoid all that by just writing a script that does its job
using the Subversion API.
