Yes, there is complete support for this feature in Subclipse. The
option you use is "Switch". Switch and Update are really the same
thing internally and users of Subclipse objected to having Update
bring up a dialog since it is so rare you want to change anything. So
you have to use Switch for any Update operation that does not involve
a "normal" update to HEAD.

When I use this feature, I checkout with depth=immediates so that
subfolders are brought down. You can then use the Switch option on
subfolders that you want to expand.
