This is what I meant by 'slightly more complicated than that'.

ubversion does have an auto-check-out-these-modules hack. It still 
treats them as separate checkouts though, so you have remember to commit 
changes there separately. This is considered a bug upstream, and 
probably isn't a big deal, since updates do work properly.

The problem is, we use http: urls for read-only access and svn+ssh: urls 
for read-write access. And the auto-checkout can't remap. So we could 
use it for one and make the other do things by hand.

We could use http: for read-write as well. This means using ssl 
certificates for authentification. We didn't do that because everyone 
already had ssh access set up and I didn't want to bother you all.
Aside from no one having written an ssl-agent, I can't think of a reason 
we couldn't do that instead.
