As of r12217, you can use the "check for modifications" dialog for this:
* start the dialog
* click on "check repository"
* you will see all the files/folders, even those you have not checked
out locally
* select the ones you like to get
* right-click
* select "update"

If you've selected entries which don't already exist locally, the update
will show the "update to revision" dialog so you can choose the depth.
