What is the scenario where you would need to checkout an entire repo? I
can't imagine ever needing to do that. We also use the policy of moving
inactive branches out of the way (to an inactive folder). Every once in
a while someone wants to look at them and that's a lot easier when the
branches are still available in the HEAD revision.

If you still need to do full repo checkouts, you could move the dead
branches to a deprecated top-level folder (i.e., move
/project/branches/deadbranch to /dead/project/branches/deadbranch).
