The thing is, having such working copies can be a real pain when you have a
large source tree, 1gb (2gb as working copy). Some users don't like having
multiple 2gb copies of the source around, and even if they did would prefer
to have a nice way to check for updates on just subgroups of the source tree
that might span multiple directories.

One WC per task may be the ideal, but the ideal doesn't always make sense.
