Don't use -N (or the "only check out top folder" option) at all at the
moment. It might look like it works, but it does Bad Stuff(tm).

If you're wanting individual projects, and you don't mind having to
update/commit them all separately, then you can just SVN Checkout each
one individually. If you need to update them all at once (but still
commit individually), then you can use svn:externals. If you want to
both update and commit all at once, then your only option at the moment
is to get the whole folder. You can't safely pick'n'mix yet.
