Thanks, Dave.
This function request does make sense. However, it may be really tricky in
the client side. There will be no .svn/entries to store the depth value if
the directory in question does not exist in advance. Current design may have
to be modified to store a list of excluded sub-directories in the
.svn/entries of the parent directory.
There is a possible alternative way to implement this. Setting the depth of
root to "files" and cut off the sub-directory in question may satisfy this
request. However, the side effect is that, the root will not receive new
added sub-directories in future update, which may be unexpected by user.

Anyway, this is just a general discussion. The deselection interface that
I'm working on will achieve the same effect when the root is with depth of
empty or files. However, an empty directory will be left if the root is with
depth of immediates or infinity.

Thank you
Rui, Guo
