I'm a lurker on this list and I wouldn't normally presume to comment,
but something in your post aroused my curiosity.

Why not? I can even think of a use-case i.e. to flatten the
directory hierarchy of a working copy. e.g.

path/to/a/really/deeply/nested/but/useful_component useful_component

I realise that with a normal recursive checkout you'll get
"useful_component" appearing twice in in your working copy hierarchy,
but it's not as if that can't happen with ../path or even absolute
