Excellent!

I see you posted a StackOverflow answer on that too, Mark -
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7481860/create-folder-structure-based-on-file

I'm one of those people that's blind to a lib or framework until I see
examples of how to use (can't read tutorials, can't read ref docs). I found
https://prabhugs.wordpress.com/2010/10/11/effective-and-easy-sparse-checkouts-svn-viewspec-py-script/
too which gets me halfway there.

The svn-viewspec script is implicitly include-centric, right? Perforce's
choice back in the 90's was to allow excludes and includes which is more
powerful even if it is dangerous.

Also: no top posting on the subversion lists, Mark. At least not if you
intend to stick around :)
