Hrm, good question 8)

You could checkout the full repo... but Jason had a good idea that we
might want to integrate into archco:

   svn checkout -N svn+ssh://archlinux.org/home/svn-packages/

The -N makes it non-recursive... so you don't get any directories...
from there you can actually just do something like:

   cd svn-packages
   svn checkout xine-lib

This might be a little better than using archco, and lets us do lots more.
