feature request: marking a directory as "not meant to be checked out"

From: Vincent Starre <vstarre_at_comcast.net>

pretty straightforward, an extra property svn:nocheckout (or something
better-named) which will, when set on a directory, produce a warning if
someone tries to check it out.

warning example:
svn co svn+ssh://server/ProjectA .
svn: The directory "ProjectA" is not meant to be checked out in full.
Try "svn ls" to see a list of subdirectories, or use --force to ignore
this warning.

ideally, a custom warning would be nice, so svn:nocheckout could (in
addition to the boolean of being set or not set) contain the warning
message (so it can be made to be more informative about what's actually
going on)

eg:
svn co svn+ssh://server/ProjectA .
svn: "ProjectA" is just a container. The actual code resides in
ProjectA/base, and branches reside in ProjectA/branches.
svn: use --force to ignore this warning.
