Sure, that's fine.... but in general, one doesn't usually check out
the entire repository. You'd end up getting every single branch and
tag.

I'm suggesting that you break your repository into 'projects'. A
project is an independent directory, and is either restricted as a
whole, or unrestricted as a whole.

I agree, it would be a good thing for svn to handle this more elegantly.
