checkout subtree; feature request

In reference to http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-03/0557.shtml, I'd like to
make this a formal feature request if it's not already. Specifically, I'd like
Subversion to have a feature that allows one to issue a command such as

svn co svn://my-server/project/branches/a-branch-i-want --build-parent-folders

and have the client build the working copy for
project/branches/a-branch-i-want/* in the current directory.

Or perhaps better would be to have an option with an argument, such that

svn co svn://my-server/project/branches/a-branch-i-want --build-from-folder \

would create the working copy under branches/a-branch-i-want.

Currently, it's possible do something like this to get the effect (thanks to
darix on #svn for pointing this out):

svn co svn://my-server/project -N; cd project; svn up trunk -N; cd trunk

but unfortunately, that's a rather obscure way to do it. (Updating a directory
that doesn't exist in your working copy is quite unintuitive.)

If no one has objections, I'll add a feature request to the issue tracker.
