Thanks. I should be able to adapt this pretty easily to a windows
executable (or VBS + cmd file); however, there is still the fact that the
"svn co" will include all of the contents under source control, when all I
want / need are the svn directories. I have one web project that is nearing
1 GB of source code, images, and template documents. Seems a shame to use 2
GB of network bandwidth and temporary file space just to get the svn
directories. I guess I'll dig a little deeper into the svn protocol and see
what I can come up with...
