Checking out part of a project but creating parent folder path

Is there a good way to checkout a portion of a project and maintain
directory structure?

Our projects are very large (<2G) and some users only need to modify a
particular piece. I know that you can checkout any directory, but that
does not create the working folders that may be above that.

svn co svn://server/project/trunk/one/two/three

This creates a "three" directory with all its contents. What we need it
to do is create the structure "project/trunk/one/two/three" and just
checkout the "three" directory but have the parent directories. Our old
repository had an option called "create working folders". The tool that
we are using is TortoiseSVN so specifying a target like

svn co svn://server/project/trunk/one/two/three
project/trunk/one/two/three

Any shortcut? Or any other graphical svn client that can accomplish
this? Command line is not an option with our "users" ;)

Thanks,
Brad
