Thanks Simon, that's great news. I'll take a look.

BTW. Does this feature also support the following scenario:

Projects
  Project 1
    Folder 1
    Folder 2
    Folder 3
  Project 2
  Project 3

Where I want to fully checkout projects 2 and 3 but only folders 1 and
2 from project 1?

Some of our project trees are quite deep.

Thanks!
