Well, no, the smallest entity you can check out is a directory. So
yes, if you just want to modify file A, checking out files A thru ZZZ
is a bit time-consuming. But you generally only do a checkout once.
 From then on, you can just update your existing working copy, and it
takes much less time. And when tomorrow you need to edit not file A
but files B, C and QX, they'll already be there for you.
