Another reasonable alternative is to update a working copy in a staging
area, possibly on a test server, then use rsync with the '-C' option to
copy the files into their production location(s). That option skips
files associated with svn or cvs metadata (and a few other things so it
is best to look at the list it skips before trusting it).
