I hope you understand that one user checking out a directory does not
mean another user will not be able to checkout. subversion provides
simultaneous edits. The user doesnt need to lock the file to use

hmm, having said that, the state of the working copy file needs to be
stored someplace relative to the actual checked-out-file. Since this is
anyways a cost incurred at a directory level, it would serve greater
purpose to check out the whole directory.

If the unnecessary files in the directory is huge and if you are
concerned about disk space, I totally understand. In that case, you
could create a branch that reflects a directory tree as needed by each
user and the user should check out that branch. merge with trunk as and
when needed

I know all these are workarounds for NOT providing file level access.
IIRC, there are some discussions to implement such/similar features...
just hang in there :)
