Yup, this shouldn't be too hard to do with svnsync. I probably
wouldn't make much use of this myself with Buildbot, but I have been
pretty happy with using svnsync to fetch a remote SVN repository for a
Trac instance (which requires filesystem access to the repository).
And I can definitely see the utility of having that in Buildbot.

Not sure how this would generalize to other non-distributed SCM systems, though.
