Directory cloaking

I was just wondering if there was any way to (ONLY at the client level,
not on the server) "cloak" a particular folder in a repository, so that
it is neither retrieved by an Update nor committed by a Commit. In
fact, it should behave exactly as if the directory doesn't exist at all
(except that it won't commit a delete for the folder).

It's important that it be a client level thing because I've got a
situation where a single username is used on two different systems --
one which should retrieve a subfolder and one which shouldn't.

To explain a little more, think of this structure:
  - repository URL: svn://myserver/software/trunk
    - projectA
      - somestuff
    - projectB
      - somestuff
    - groupC
      - projectD
      - projectE
      - projectF
    - groupG
      - projectH
      - projectI

On one machine, a developer needs everything except "groupG". On
another machine, they need everything except "groupG" and "projectE".
Other developers have different requirements.

Sure, they could just get everything anyway (which is what they're doing
at the moment). But some of these folders can be quite large (and
busy), and it seems silly & time-consuming to force people to get stuff
they don't need.
