It's an interesting idea.  If the repository files were directly 
accessible in a filesystem, that filesystem could be shared with rsyncd 
and some exclude settings without needing an export at all.  With svn 
bdb, the files are not directly accessible, but I don't know for fsfs. 
Probably not, so a periodic export would still be required.
