Why only SVN? I'm not trying to be picky but if we start supporting this
for SVN it's very easy to argue we should support it for some other VCS.
Personally I think this kind of thing is best left up to the maintainer
to use his/her custom scripts and not stuff support for it into the
ports infrastructure.
