I should hope so. If my understanding of the sparse directories feature
isn't way off-base, you should be able to build a working copy that has all
the stuff you want, plus files and depth-zero directories you don't want.
Then you'd use 'svn delete' on those files and depth-zero directories you
don't want.

I admit that I'm talking from theory rather than actuality, though.
