Realistically, how often do people check everything out?
I've had a full check-out lying around for the last couple
of months and used it for I think only two migrations
(duplicating the Homepage: field from the description to a
proper control field; and documenting a change someone else
did once). When I did the first one, I felt that for how
often it was necessary, it would be relatively easy to do
something like

	svn ls $REPO |
	<maybe some cleanup to end up with distinct names> |
	while read name; do 
		svn co $REPO/$name

Who maintains a full check-out and actively uses it?
