 I know that checkout is different from update in CVS, but then CVS has

 right?

It's not idiotic, but it involves subtle assumptions about how things
work and don't work in Subversion.

In essence, what you're proposing is similar to the solutions being
considered (Ben is detailing them in the issue right now), but not
exactly the same, because we want to avoid transmitting the entire
client-side entries list to the server except when absolutely
necessary.
