You'd probably want to export to a local test/staging area, then
run a scripted rsync to the real server(s). Rsync is probably
even more efficient at updating differences to remote files.
Or you could rsync from a local working copy, excluding the
.svn directory, but if you do that you should be careful to
make a tag and update from the tag or something similar in
the script to be sure that what you publish is actually a
known version in the repository.
