Wow, what a long thread. Everyone seems to be talking about how 'svn
co -N' doesn't work properly.

Here's a silly question: can't our 'modules' feature solve your
problem for the time being?

Lay out your repository like this:

  /a
  /b
  /c
  /project/
  /modules/
          /fullmodule
          /partialmodule

fullmodule and partialmodule can simply be copies of 'project'. Now
set the 'svn:externals' property on the two module directories. The
partialmodule automatically adds a and b subdirs, and the fullmodule
adds all three subdirs.

Wouldn't that work?
