But consider what happens to your website if the svn update
execution fails for any reason or if there is another commit while
the script still runs (or even hangs). Guess this will be less of an
issue if repository and the website wc are on the same machine,
but if they are not and you have to run the script through ssh/telnet
you might more easily end up with a wc lacking some updates.
