Yes, but it's not what you want:

svn co -N http://blahserver/work/repos/module1/test test

which will create an unconnected WC inside the current WC. In other words, if
you run 'svn status' in the local module1 directory, you will get a unknown
marker (?) for the ./test directory. And no operations inside ./test can be
performed (i.e. svn up, svn ci, etc) from the top level directory, since the
WC's don't know about each other.

Non-recursive checkouts don't work the way you'd like them to; I don't know what
the future of them will allow.
