The description was wrong; this won't work for nested checkouts.
Assuming all your WC are coming from one repository you can do a
sparse checkout of the root, and then drill down into each
subdirectory in turn and do another sparse update or a fully recursive
one until you get the level of population you want.

Another way is to create a local repository, check it out into a
folder, then add svn:externals to the folder to pull in each of the
URLs you want as a separate working copy. The local repository is not
storing any useful information, just the list of URLs.

The question marks are not directly related to this. They show up for
any unversioned item inside a working copy, but you can turn them off.
