You can always pull the code using the AnonSVN user interface from the
web, it can produce tarballs of just the things that you need.

Our todo list includes "Make it easier to release components
independently", would love to do it, we just need the spare cycles to
make it happen in a general way for everything that we need.

I think the tarball solution is pretty good, and we could just bundle
solutions or files for the more complicated modules (Mono.Options is
really easy to use).
