There already were comments on the usefulness of a complete checkout. I
mainly find (resp. found, in the days of CVS, without the path-emulated
tags/branches) it helpful to be able to search the whole repo for usages
of my APIs.

Anyway, one way to not have to script this would be to have a separate
tree that pulls in all the interesting parts as svn:externals. That way,
you get easy updates; in exchange for needing some care when committing.
(I don't suppose you actually *want* the ../trunk/.. in the paths?)
