Using TortoiseSVN to check out a nested working copy

I'd like to use nested working copies with Tortoise. This is so that I can do
simultaneous commits to widely-separated areas of the repository without
needing a huge working copy.

So, I want to check out an empty folder in the repository, then use that empty
folder to store all my small working copies.

The only snag is that once the empty folder is checked out, the "Checkout..."
option disappears from the Tortoise context menus. Is there any way of forcing
Tortoise to display it?

(PS Yes, I know the workaround is trivial - e.g.
- checkout using the command line,
- checkout somewhere else and move the folder,
- or for an alternative approach, do a top-level non-recursive checkout and
  switch all the unwanted branches to the empty folder,
but I'd just like to know if there's any way of doing this directly. Keep it
simple for the users and all that...)
