Feature request: Sparse checkout with "load rules" file

Currently, I'm working on a very large repository that I only check out sparsely. Using TortoiseSVN it is laborius to manually add each desired folder to my view every time I check out a branch. In e.g. ClearCase it is common to specify which files/folders to check out in a "load rules" text file, containing one path per line. Everything beneath each specified path (load rule) are then checked out automatically. I've already written a simple python script to perform sparse checkout with "load rules" from the command line, but it would be very convenient to have similar functionality built into TortoiseSVN.

The structure of a "load rules" text file can be very simple, with one path (file or folder) per line. In addition, it would be possible to augment the structure with a second column for checkout type (empty, files, immediates, infinity).

Is there any interest in implementing some support for streamlined sparse checkout, based on a text file with "load rules"?

Thanks in advance,
Fredrik Orderud
