Like Simon says, SVN really works at a folder level and not an
individual file level.

There are weird things you can do with sparse-checkouts (only checkout
file children or individual items) or svn:externals that point at single
files - but things will work better at the folder level.

(I'm guessing that this might change with the next-generation working
copy? Since that moves away from having .svn/_svn hidden folders
everywhere? But I wouldn't plan on it.)
