I'm sure how this becomes easier with a single file checkout? You would
still have to locate the file only in the repository instead of your
working copy.

You could decide on the scheme you want to use to partition the files at
first and move the relevant files before checking out a working copy.

Something along the lines of:
- BigMess
  - Project1
  - Project2

Subversions mkdir and move both can work directly on the repository.
