Unless that feature is implemented in the Subversion library, TSVN can't
really help you there. Even if we would offer an option to just check
out certain directories, it wouldn't really help. Because on the next
update, all directories would get added again.
So this really has to be done in the Subversion library and made
'sticky', i.e. all commands would have to respect the excluded paths and
not fetch them again (like 'update').

So, to make a long story short: you have to ask on the Subversion
mailing list for such a feature.
