Comment #4 on issue 27 by cmpilato: 1.6 change: '--set-depth exclude'  

That's a great point you make, pipping.elias.  I never realized it before  
(and I use
sparse checkouts all the time), but the continuing lack of a way to say "I  
everything except <this>" is a bit of an operational shortcoming in  

I wonder if there is a workaround:

    svn checkout --depth immediates <dir>   # get just <dir> and its shallow  
    svn up --set-depth exclude <nasty_dir>  # exclude <nasty_dir>
    svn up --set-depth infinity *           # de-shallow the rest of the kids


(Haven't tried it.  Maybe you will?)
