Not really... All you need is "svn up -r '{2007-05-09 23:59:59}'".
This will update your working copy to the state of the repository at
that date and time. No need to get a list of files to do the update.
Now, if you need the list of files for your build system, then,
coincidentally, the output of that "svn up" command will give you the
list of what changed, so you can just use that.

He didn't mean "cut off" as in stop development for a time; he meant
that if you want to update your build system's working copy not to
the current version but to a version from a specific earlier time,
then you could schedule the "svn up" command to run at that
particular time.
