Downloading SVN without SVN client (aka - how to get wordpress themes)

My friend asked me to migrate her Wordpress.com blog to a private Wordpress.org site.

Wordpress.org setup takes 5 minutes and is not worth writing about. However after migration, the theme was missing.

Apparently, the themes do not migrate, but they are available via SVN here:
https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/ideation-and-intent (and others)

But... I do NOT want to install SVN, and I could get them with WGET.
off topic, but neat write up on wget here: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/downloading-entire-web-site-wget

But I did find a way to download any SVN repository as a ZIP file w.o any installs :



BOOM!!
