Are you aware that the sparse directories feature you would get in one month
will only exist as API inside the Subversion libraries? In other words,
there will be no command line UI to use the feature. You would have to do
something yourself that uses the API or hope that one of the GUI clients
tackles the feature.

The command line UI will come, but at best around the same time that merge
tracking will be done.

I would imagine if you created something that let you create a working copy
that uses this feature that commands like update would respect it and work
properly. Not sure of that though.
