Partial Checkout suggestion

As of the latest nightly build, as far as I can tell the only way to check
out specific sub-folders is by using the repository browser window and using
the "Update to revision" option. However, I do not find this to be
intuitive. I'm not sure if you guys had only planned on this being a
temporary solution. I would personally much rather have a new context menu
option, called "Configure Checkout" or something. This would make a dialog
appear with a list of sub-folders inside the folder from which we accessed
the dialog. Check boxes would also be to the left of each folder name. By
checking boxes, you tell TSVN that it can acquire those folders during an
update. By unchecking them, they will no longer be obtained through updates.

This, in my opinion, is a great way for TortoiseSVN to interface with the
partial checkout feature in Subversion 1.5. Let me know if you guys like
this idea. I imagine you guys have already thought about this a lot so I am
also curious to hear of any developments on this subject.
