Not sure if worthy, but at least used, in our project layout is
sometimes (rare, but it happen) good to checkout 2-3 folders from 5+. We
either get them all and waste disk space, or make 3 checkout. Sometime
may happen that multiple checkout this choice was not best. Lead to
multiple commit (in good designed repository this should probably not
happen, in real world it is very rare).
Other point is that we have some common documentation near modules, so
switching some folder off may be nice, but this may be handled by other
workaround when really needed (e. g. delete and add to ignore list) -
never used till now:)

While I see this interseting, there are also questions about handling
some situations. I expect that svn does not support this native, so even
update and commit may by intersting to handle. Also which log messages
should be shown for such checkout is not clear for me.
What about each file separately ?

I think that this sound nice, but I see more "problems" than gain for a
