Hem all goodies, that's quite a lot. Do you really use them all? I have
12 extra programs (some from goodies, from git and terminal from
xfce) :-)

What do you think about scripting it on your side? For instance a
simple alias svn-up-goodies='find ./ -type d -name .svn -prune -exec
svn up -N {}/.. \;'. Of course this doesn't work to get the new
projects, so you had to checkout them apart in your goodies directory,
but would this suffice?
