How to hide (cloak) directories I'm not interested in?

We moved to subversion & tortoiseSVN from SourceSafe & SourceOffSite. In my
opinion, this was a good decision.

However, one problem remains. With SS and SOS it was possible for a user to
define certain directories/files in the version control as "cloaked", which
meant they were not downloaded or updated even if an entire directory tree they
belonged to was updated. This was useful because our version control system
contains also files that are only required for testing or creation of setup
programs, not for day to day development. It would save disk space, bandwidth
and nerves if it was possible for a user to define such directories hidden and
only access them when she really needs them.

What is the "industry standard" way of achieving this with subversion?
Separating everything into their own repositiories? Modifying user rights for
each directory preventing some users from accessing them? Buying larger hard
disks and more bandwidth for everyone?
