Advisory depth property for sparse directories

Hi,

Is there any sort of advisory depth property for directories so you can set the default level at which that directory is checked out? Something like

svn propset svn:depth immediate .

This would then act like svn co --depth=immediate when that directory was checked out, unless a specific depth was specified on the command line.

We have directory trees which contain stuff which is always needed and other stuff which is only needed on occasions, and fairly na´ve users (from a Subversion point of view) and we are having a lot of disk space taken up unnecessarily by complete trees being checked out. It would be good for the experts to be able to say "this is stuff we always need, this stuff should only be checked out if explicitly needed" and avoid the users having to worry about building their tree. It would also help with checkouts where different directory hierarchies need to be checked out to different levels - doing it by hand, we have to check out the top level to the minimum needed by any of the sub-directories, then go into each subdirectory and update those to the relevant level and recurse until we have the right structure.

Cheers,
