At least in a GNU environment, you could try:
$ mkdir sources sources/apps sources/libs
$ svn ls $REPOS/Sources/Apps | xargs --replace svn checkout {}/trunk
$ svn ls $REPOS/Sources/Libs | xargs --replace svn checkout {}/trunk

This would (hopefully, untested!) result in each project
trunk being checked out individually.

Another trick would be to have a folder in the repository,
say /alltrunks, and put a svn:externals property on that
which looks something like:

App1 url://repos/Sources/Apps/App1/trunk
App2 url://repos/Sources/Apps/App2/trunk
Lib1 url://repos/Sources/Libs/Lib1/trunk

Then users could check out /alltrunks if they so desired.
