Sorry, no. The best you will get is sparse checkouts. Checkout the top
level with folders only. Select every other folder and update them to
depth "fully recursive". Then drill down into the problem folder doing
the same thing - fully recursive for safe branches, children only for
the bloated branch.

You only need to do this once. Subversion will remember the recursion
settings, so updating from the top level afterwards will work.
