The same question is really pertinent to a a very-flat hierarcy with
many files in just one directory with no subdirectories, and the user
only wants to check out 43 of these *files*.

Will Ben's suggestion to 'svn co -N <dir>' and then 'svn up foo' work if
foo is an individual file? Does 1.1 allow checking out a single *file*
too? (Not at 1.1 yet, I'm affraid)

( I realize this was not the original question and not the question Ben
answered. I've just come across the requirement of only needing one file
among many large files in a single directory in the past and just check
out the entire directory every time, or create separate directories each
containing a single file, just to get around this. )
