Can't (svn does not the possibility to administer this property in a checkout) or won't (tortoisesvn will not allow this although it is perfectly valid in svn)?

I think that depends on your definition of 'worked'. I have version 1.7.1 here which actually allows me to select or deselect external folders for a selective checkout, and I do (respectively don't) get those externals in my checkout (admittedly in the wrong location, so it doesn't work perfectly). The problem is that when I do select the externals, the rest of the checkout is broken.
I think that functionality basically 'worked' in 1.7.1 and the selective checkout of the non-external files does not.

But seriously, isn't this just a matter of changing the order of operations: first checkout the locals, then the externals? In the selection_w_external log it seems too much priority is given to the externals.
