Ah, I understand it better now, thanks. So this would be most useful
in a directory that had been checked out with -N first (so the main
thing is to get -N working right). The subsequent checkouts are about
undoing the effect of the -N, a little bit at a time :-).

Thanks for the description. Given a working -N, imho this is a
completely intuitive behavior for follow-up checkouts within that
directory. Would you like to add your comments to

   http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=695

(the checkout -N issue)?
