RE: "cloak" a part of tree?

Is this not a function of the Versioned Modules? It sounds to me that
an SVN module is a list of directories. You set up a module that has
the directories the specific user needs, and SVN ignores the other
things in the tree. I suppose this is rather a mirror image feature
from what you describe as "cloaked" directories... but maybe it is
what you are looking for. (I have not used modules in SVN, so this
is just a thought.)

From the book:

Unlike CVS, a Subversion working copy is aware that it has checked out
a module. That means that if somebody changes the definition of a module,
then a call to svn update will update the working copy appropriately.
Subversion defines modules as a list of directories within a directory
property: see the section called "Externals Definitions".

Subject: "cloak" a part of tree?
VSS has a notion of "cloaking" a directory for a user.  The prevents
recursive updates etc. from traverse that part of a larger repository.
Given the size of our repository this is rather useful for some folks.
We would like to do something like this in Subversion.  Some how mark a
given sub-directory in a working copy as "cloaked" or something such that a
svn update or svn commit would not consider files in that directory (or it's
children.  Is there a way to do this with subversion?
