It's only good for slow machines.  It downloads the logfile first and
runs "svn update" only on the directories mentioned in the logfile.

It makes sense to run "svn update" occasionally to be sure that my
simple script does not forget anything.

I had not been aware that someone is using the script, I had been told
that Staszek has a new machine, but if anybody has problems with the
script, please let me know.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
