Hey Scott -

Perhaps, there may be better tools with SVN anyways, we could also  
just instantiate a script that tarballed the already auto-updated  
code here (i think it syncs every hour):

We'll still playing around with this and I can't guarantee that we'll  
get the SVN commits back to CVS to work.
