Typically you only check out the trunk, but if you need to do this for
your workflow you can svn remove the branches once they are no longer
active. They will still be in the repository, but you'll have to access them
by specifying a revision number in which they existed.

Or you can do non-recursive checkouts (-N), but this has problems
when doing operations in the directory that was checked out (but not
in any of it's fully checked out children).
