Re: Checkout path.

I was sure you might have had this discussion earlier.

The "problem" with that behaviour, is that, for instance, when
you want to checkout multiple projects in the same directory, from different
paths in the repository, you are unable to do it with tsvn directly, you'd
have to
check out the first one from its /trunk/ path, then delete the .svn created
in the
local folder, then checkout the other project from its own /trunk/ path,
Or, you'd have to create the folders before, and then checkout in those
folder respectively.

I am certainly not trying to revert the choices made in early stages, but
maybe just an option to either create
the subfolder, or not version the parent one would be nice.
