Hello Jason,

it seems that you are looking for ‘pristine-tar’. Using a repository where all
the sources are checked out as well as the pristine-tar delta, you can
regenerate a binary-identical tarball. Actually, this is implemented for git
repositories in the tool ‘git-buildpackage’. I know it is not Subversion, but
if you do not use the mergeWithUpstream mode of svn-buildpackage, it is an
alternative to really consider.
