There's a related problem, which we have now with CVS in the src
repository, but would get worse if they were merged. CVS does not
remember which module(s) you originally selected when you checked out
a tree. Therefore, if you use the -d option, it checks out the entire
repository the first time you try to update a working copy containing
a subset of the tree. But if you don't use the -d option you don't
get _any_ new subdirectories unless you specifically ask for them, and
you may not know which they are.

It would be nice if Subversion did this better.
