Most people do something like this:

<exec executable="svn">
  <arg line="co ${project.url}"/>

Mix and match with some macros, play around with the other exec
attributes, and you should be up and running.

The upcoming Ant 1.7 *will* have some svn tasks, but these are doing the
same sort of thing under the covers (i.e. you will still need the
Subversion command line client available). You can check out the Ant
source from the repository if you want to test this out.
