Checking out a single file

I have a Java client with which I'd like to be able to create a working copy
by checking out files on a case by case basis instead of checking out an
entire module. But it doesn't seem that either command line SVN or the
Javahl interface provides such a mechanism.

Is a single file checkout even remotely possible?
What changes to SVN might be required to make it so?
Is it likely to be a reasonably simple implementation of another checkout
method in Javahl? Or is it likely to require major surgery?

Just to provide some perspective (as I may be tackling this entirely the
wrong way), this is what I'm attempting:
A WebDAV Servlet that can run on any WebServer (initial target is Weblogic)
that is backed by a SubVersion repository.
I don't have the option of using Apache 2.0 and mod_dav_svn.

Also, I've had a look at JavaSVN, but it seems bound by the SVN constraints
of checkout of an entire module.
