Hmmm.  I just took a quick look at the SVN step implementation, and it appears 
confused.  It derives from CVS, but doesn't take all the same constructor 
args (in particular, it doesn't take export, which CVS does).  It also skips 
the CVS constructor, calling back to ShellCommand.__init__().  This is 
seriously weird.

Brian, is this intentional behavior for the SVN step?  Would you accept a 
patch to correct some of these problems and enable a more obvious way to do 
Subversion exports?
