Thanks for the explanations, one and all.

Does the repository have to start out empty?
If not, I suppose the first method would have
the added disadvantage that if you wanted 'foo'
to appear at the top level, you would end up
checking out everything in the repository, and
there might be a lot of it.

Is it possible to add foo below the top level?
