I am talking about checking out a single project, however the "projects" all use the same folders, like shared folders.  So when you do a get on the top level, you get all the files for every project rather than just the files for the project of interest

Let me get this straight, you're not talking about checking out a single project vs. the whole tree. You're talking about checking out a project, but not the externals directories? You can take a look at several things: * There's an --ignore-externals flag when you do a checkout. This prevents any externals directory from being checked out. * Take a look at the --depth switch. You can checkout a directory, without checking out the sub-directories, then just update the subdirectories you want. (Note: There's a --set-depth flag on the update command to override the setting on the checkout command. (See http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.5.html#sparse-checkouts for more information on the depth switch.)
