If the massive updates you want to avoid are in subdirectories, you may
try "svn update -N" to update non-recursively. Or you can use "svn cat"
to get the file directly from the repository without updating the
working copy (I wouldn't do it that way, though). At any rate, I think
you have to at least update the directory containing d, since d exists
as a child of that revision of the directory in the repository.

(Someone please correct me swiftly and harshly if I'm spreading
falsehoods here.)
