Subversion versions directories, so it expects to have "complete"
directories all the time. We've not yet built in any sort of support
for maintaining "partial" trees.

Well, really, we have partial-directory support only in the sense
that the working copy *knows* when portions of a tree are missing.
Unfortunately, the working copy considers this to be a "broken" tree
in need of repair by 'svn update'.

Independent of the question "will this design ever change?", you can
work around it by simply Not Doing That. In other words, don't nest
restricted trees within non-restricted trees. Keep them separate.
