If you implement something like this:
http://stackoverflow.com/a/842715/149060 - where the solution involves
using SVN Export Directory functionality to download the source to a local
folder, and then zip the directory, on the fly - you could then use the zip
file in the normal update process.

No experience with it - just interested enough in the problem to do some
Googling to see if I could figure it out.  YMMV, etc.
