Yes :)

I don't quite get your problem here. Why would you check out something
and then delete the .svn folder??
If you want to check out multiple folders, just do it.
* right-click on the folder where you want to check out
* enter the URL to check out from
* append the folder name to the check out path
* TSVN asks you if you want to create that folder since it doesn't exist
* click "yes" and let the checkout run

And btw: such nested folders are not what we want to push users to do.
If you're project requires something like this, I'd say the layout of
your project is wrong. I always want my projects to be 'ready' with a
single checkout.
You *can* do it with TSVN, but if you need to do a little bit more work
than usual, that's absolutely intended and good - because you might then
reconsider what you're doing and find a better project layout.
