limited svn update

I've just started svn and now run into this... I wonder how to deal with it.

I've imported a *large* (about 230MB) vendor tree into subversion. That
took a long time on 0.27.
Now I've tagged that, so basically in the repo there is this:
I've created someversion by copying from URL to URL, since I'm not
really interested in getting someversion on disk. So on disk I have a
complete ACE/current.

Now I have two questions.
1. how cvan I limit other people from getting someversion (since this is
the vendor tree, most people would not be interested in this).
2. how can I (in my wc) get the someversion directory without actually
getting all of it? I just want to be able to see that it exists, without
having all its contents.

As for #2, I've tried (in 3rdparty/ACE) to do a non-recursive update
(svn up -N .), but that does not create the someversion directory.
I've tried a non recursive update of the someversion directory (svn -N
up someversion), but that results in a very cryptic message: svn:
warning: svn_wc_is_wc_root: 'someversion' is not a versioned resource)

I was hoping it would be possible to extract (limit) update to only
update the directory structure, without fetching any files. Something
along these lines:
svn up --dirs-only
And then later, when interested get the files with a regular update.

Or limit the treedepth:
svn up --maxdepth 3
