Well aware, thanks. Much improved in SOOO many ways, although there are
some cross over features that I'd like to see added ...

That's what I was looking for, thanks.

It makes me wonder if there's another way to do this. What I'm really
trying to do is deal with a subset of files within a hierarchy while
largely ignoring the rest. Sorry to quote CVS again, but the way I
_would_ have done it is by checking out a specific "module" (alias)
and/or pruning the non-needed files after the first checkout. I haven't
figured out a good way to do this in SVN yet. I can do it by
hand-building a set of checkout commands for the few subdirectories I
need, but this has been a pain to explain to some of my not-so-with-it
developers. Kind of off topic, so I'll drop it...

Thanks for your help, Stefan.
