From the svn dev list: The subversion faq (
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html) recommends "svn export" for the
following reason according to the commit log. "recommend 'svn export'
instead of 'svn cat', for exporting a single file. This honors svn:executable,
and doesn't require any shell redirection syntax."
