Sorry for duplicate mails.

The method pointed out on that URL can ignore directories that I don't
care, but I need do an unwanted checkout for C/ from the real repos at
the first time, of course, it's not a big problem, just not so intuitive.

I think it's better to add an "update" menu item (and "missing" icon for
each missing directory?) in the SVN Repo-browser, since 'svn update' can
deal with this case now, we don't need a switch trick any more.

Best regards,

Liu Yubao
